Abstract:This paper provides a review of various types and levels of library evaluation. It attempts to stimulate a debate on the pros and cons of these methods of evaluation in order to provide options for academic libraries, especially those in Ghana. Other issues discussed in the paper include concepts in library evaluation, criteria for evaluation, and problems in evaluation. The writer concludes that despite the acknowledged importance of evaluation, accounts of actual library evaluations are few.
