Evaluation of the Academic Library by Technology Transfer Offices in Higher Education

« This study presents data from two surveys done respectively in 2011 and 2013 that queried the technology transfer departments of research oriented colleges and universities worldwide about how they view their academic libraries.  The study gives extensive data on how these departments feel about their medical, business school and general academic libraries.  They answer questions about how much help that they receive, where they need more help, what they like about what their libraries are doing, and where they fall short.  The study is an invaluable aid to any academic library seeking to become an essential part of their institution’s technology development and licensing efforts. »
