LISU is an internationally renowned research and information centre for library and information services, based in the Department of Information Science at Loughborough University. We collect, analyse, interpret, and publish statistical information for and about the library domain in the UK, and undertake research and consultancy projects for a wide range of organisations.

It is hard to see how policy makers, service providers, or researchers can carry out their work effectively without the continuing work of LISU. Reference Reviews, 22(2), 2008, p8
