Bibliografia sobre l’impacte econòmic de les biblioteques: Value of Libraries Megapost. Stephen Abram

I have been pulling together all of my posts on studies and reports on the value of public libraries for my work with the Federation of Ontario Public Libraries.  I thought I might as well post it here too. I’m sure I’ve got some dupes in here but c’est la vie!  Hope you find it useful!  There are many useful talking points and proofs in this research. We look forward to the value studies report from the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto that is in process right now for Toronto Public Library that is expected to be released in late 2013.
