Project description
The CAMILE project will bring together experience and expertise in library management through the partnership of four existing Libraries Programme projects working in the area of decision support in libraries. It is anticipated that this will lead to long term consensus, the development of common approaches and ultimately the development building of new standards.
The action will provide for information sharing beyond the life of all four existing projects [DECIDEDECIMALEQLIPSEMINSTREL]. Expert subject groups will be formed which will share expertise leading to the identification of research areas requiring further work and stimulation. A programme of dissemination, aimed at multiple levels of competence within the library community, will provide training and continuing education, in addition to examples of best practice and practical application of modern management techniques in libraries.
Technical approach
The action is designed to directly exploit the outcomes of existing research activities, extending these through the development of common themes and the extension of communications processes. The action will:
Key issues
Impact and expected results
It is anticipated that this concerted action will lead to a greater and more effective use of management information tools and techniques in libraries in Europe. It will encourage the use of European focused performance measures and contribute to greater communication of information between libraries. The involvement of a range of library system suppliers will ensure the take-up of results into new generations of library systems. The contribution of library schools will ensure the penetration of ideas and actions into the library profession. The concertation will also establish communication between interested libraries designed to be continued after the end of the project.
