The University of Michigan will lead a study of how libraries impact learning by focusing on the research question, "How does the academic library impact learning in the university community, specifically in the areas of course instruction, funded research, and publications?" Fifteen partner institutions will carry out similar research activities and will collaborate on a report that explores the replication of the research across institutional settings. The project will provide guidance on how to best design and implement empirical, holistic analysis of the links between library usage and learning outcomes. The project will produce a set of tools, scripts, and protocols that will be freely available to all libraries.
