Problems Finding Software? It is fairly easy to find a general purpose software package. But what do you do when you need software to perform a highly specific task? "Computer Software Evaluation" tells you how to determine your specific 'needs' and 'wants' and how to compare multiple software packages. "What Library function or functions would provide the greatest return to you and your department?" This is how the author started interviews with department managers when he was asked to select software for the company Library. He immediately focused on how to best serve his users. After surveying department managers about their needs, the IT department about software and hardware standards, the author value-ranked the needs and wants into functional requirements. Then software packages were reviewed to see if they met those requirements. Each step of this process is detailed in the book, from user surveys, value ranking spreadsheets, a line item quote example to a management project proposal.
