English abstract

This theoretically based paper deals with two ways of evaluation research utilization at academic library system in the Czech Republic. It is organized in five sections. The changes in current society and their influence in the field of academic library system are reflected. Furthermore on the basis of current situation, it outlines the need of evaluation research. The second part of this paper provides a short review of the most popular evaluation research approaches applied in practice. The paper presents two ways of evaluation research utilization at academic library system. In the first instance, evaluation research can be used for the analysis of relations between systems of academic, research and information service institutions (especially on the example of academic libraries). The second possibility indicates formative evaluation research as a tool for improving the effectiveness of internal processes and procedures at academic libraries. In conclusion, the outputs based on this paper are shortly summed and some of the findings are recommended for the implementation.
