The RBMS Task Force on Metrics and Assessment will be charged with examining current practices for gathering and reporting statistics on special collections and archives; conducting a survey of the literature; and working toward establishing best practices. The Task Force will consider both what activities are worthy of assessment and how to undertake the assessment of those activities. As the OCLC report points out, without norms for our metrics it is extremely difficult to make comparisons across institutions.
