GONZALEZ MATEOS, Irene  and  FABA PEREZ, Cristina. Models for evaluating the condition of school-based libraries and the quality of their web site. Investig. bibl [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.63, pp.29-50. ISSN 2448-8321.

This paper approaches two objectives: 1) to develop a comprehensive model of 44 indicators to assess the performance or status of school libraries, and 2) to design a specific model of 30 objective features to assess the quality of school-based library web sites. In 2012, researchers documented the practical implementation of both models in school-based libraries in the City of Badajoz located in the region of Extremadura, Spain, in order to ascertain indicator validity and develop a library ranking in accord with operational quality of the respective websites. The results show that there is no correlation between the rank of school libraries based on current conditions and the quality rank of their associated websites.

Keywords : School libraries; Evaluation Models; Performance; Websites; Badajoz.
