The primary responsibility of the ROI Task Force was to investigate Return on Investment (ROI) / Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) tools and assess their value for use by the Health Sciences and Human Services Library.  The automated calculators from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) were the principle  resources uitilized in determining the CBA and ROI figures for the Library's books, journals, and one database.  The "Cost Benefit Analysis/Return on Investment" section of this report discusses the data compilation process and final results with the details included in five appendices.
