Research and consulting leader Best Practices, LLC undertook this new study to benchmark the services and resources of corporate libraries within the biopharmaceutical industry. This study will help library and information leaders compare the scope and delivery of library services at their companies with those at peer organizations. In addition, this research study will help library and information center leaders compare the budget, cost recovery and staffing for library services at their companies with those at leading organizations within the biopharmaceutical industry.
Across all study participants, about 83% of FTEs providing library services are within the library function, according to “Library Services Benchmarks 2017: Corporate Library Services in the Pharmaceutical Industry.” The remaining 17% of FTEs providing library services are within other corporate functions.
Some of the issues addressed in this research include:
- Use of vendors in services delivery
- Financial resources
- Cost recovery practices
- Distribution of FTE hours by service category
- Library innovation & service strategies
The full 42-page report provides library leaders with critical benchmarks that will allow them to compare their operations with those of leading organizations. Ten pharmaceutical companies participated in this benchmarking study.
