This book provides practical guidance for delivering and sustaining value and impact from digital content.

Our digital presence has the power to change lives and life opportunities. We must understand digital values to consider how organizational presence within digital cultures can create change. Impact assessment is the tool to foster understanding of how strategic decisions about digital resources may be fostering change within our communities. Delivering Impact with Digital Resources focuses on introducing both a mechanism and a way to thinking about strategies and evidence of benefits that extend to impact. Such that, the existence of a digital resource shows measurable outcomes that demonstrate a change in the life or life opportunities of the community. The book proposes an updated Balanced Value Impact Model (BVIM) to enable each memory organization to convincingly argue they are an efficient and effective operation, working in innovative modes with digital resources for the positive social and economic benefit of their communities.

Coverage includes:

a guide to using the Balanced Value Impact Model and a wide range of data gathering and evidence based methods
exploration of strategy in the context of digital ecosystems, an attention economy and cultural economics
working with communities and stakeholders to deliver on promises implicit in digital resources/activities
major case studies about Europeana, the Wellcome Trust and the National Gallery of Denmark, amongst others
an exploration of the difference between the attitudes expressed by groups within digital cultures versus the actual behaviours they exhibit using impact exemplars from many sectors and geographies to show how they are explored and applied.

Readership: This book will be especially useful for those managing digital presences in libraries, archives, galleries and museums including MA and PhD students studying subjects such as librarianship, information science, museums studies, archival studies, publishing, cultural studies and media studies.
