See my Dialog Quantum case study "Return on Investment" here

In late 2001 the BNA Library conducted this ROI study to measure our impact on BNA's bottomline, and our research showed that for every $1.00 spent on the Library, we returned $1.26.

We will be updating the study this summer (2006) and I expect to post the update to the Quantum website in Fall 2006.
