I posted a couple of articles from Government Information Quarterly that were associated with assessment/evaluation. The most notable of these is “A comprehensive framework for the assessment of eGovernment projects“, which discusses the application of the “socio-technical model” to evaluate e-government applications. I like the use of the dimensions of assessment:
Also interesting was the incorporation of both stages of e-government development and stakeholders. The former are closely aligned with stages of acceptance/use of technology by users (innovative leader, visionary follower, steady achievers, and platform builders). And including stakeholders in any assessment is an obvious, albeit little followed, rule.
I can easily see how this framework could be applied to online library services and resources. What do you think?
