How do library professionals talk about and refer to library users, and how is this significant? In recent decades, the library profession has conceived of users in at least five different ways, viewing them alternatively as citizens, clients, customers, guests, or partners. This book argues that these user metaphors crucially inform librarians' interactions with the public, and, by extension, determine the quality and content of the services received. The ultimate aim of this book is to provide library professionals with insights and tools for avoiding common pitfalls associated with false or professionally inadequate conceptions of library users.

How can we measure the contribution which libraries make to society in the age of the internet? The existing international library statistics were developed nearly forty years ago and do not reflect library activity today. An international collaboration between IFLA, the UNESCO Institute of Statistics and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has developed standards for new library indicators for the twenty-first century. These conference papers present the first results using the new statistics, and look forward to the next steps. The conference also highlights a variety of other initiatives and developments in the fields of library statistics, benchmarking and indicators.
