Evaluating Remote Reference Service: A Practical Guide to Problems and Solutions

This paper identifies key methodological issues affecting quality of data in the evaluation of remote reference services.

The strategies proposed in this paper offer practical ways in which libraries can improve the overall quality and usefulness of data gathered in remote reference evaluation studies.
