Are you a library user? Do you know how much the services offered by the library would cost, if they were to be paid from your own pocket?
The CSIC Library Network Calculator allows the cost of the services provided to be calculated. The tool originally proposed by the Massachusetts Library Association, has been adapted to the purposes of research libraries and performs the calculation of what services would cost, were they to be paid directly by users themselves, in the absence of the work carried out by the library. Users may discover the value of the library network’s intermediation and libraries, the return on investment made.
