One place to look is the dissertation research of a colleague of mine,
His thesis is a fairly specific application of his goal, but his goal
tries to get much deeper than metrics that we typically throw around.
I find his work and tools fascinating. The idea is that one can back,
with research, a claim that library resources and services link directly
to improved learning outcomes. There is huge potential here.
