Our Approach

With over 40 years of experience, Attain Partners provides tailored library planning and strategy services to academic and research libraries. 

Our Library Cost Study assists universities with the optimization of overhead cost recovery related to library expenses supporting sponsored grants and contracts. 

Our work provides higher education institutions with data necessary to negotiate the library component of their indirect cost rate in accordance with federal requirements. The Library Cost Study provides important assessment information for libraries, documenting expenditures, collections, and services to support sponsored research versus teaching and learning and non-sponsored research.

We draw on our extensive professional experience working in libraries to provide strategic planning, assessment, process optimization, change management, staff augmentation, and improve the research and student experience in libraries.

What We Do

We not only provide superior library management expertise, we collaborate with our strategic planning, process modernization, IDEA, and grants management teams to perform a complete library evaluation, providing a uniquely thorough approach.
