Benchmarking exercise for Leicestershire Library Services & Warwickshire Library & Info Service 2004‑05


LISU worked with Leicestershire, Warwickshire and five similar library authorities to investigate the relative costings of library services. By exploring how the figures each authority submitted to CIPFA were compiled, the aim was to shed light on differences in the figures between authorities, particularly in terms of financial data and key library use indicators. As a result, examples of good practice were highlighted, and then investigated in more detail, with an emphasis on staffing, visitor management and ICT provision.
