LISU was an internationally renowned research and information centre for library and information services, based in the Centre for Information Management which is part of the School of Business and Economics at Loughborough University. LISU collected, analysed, interpreted, and published statistical information for and about the library domain in the UK, and undertook research and consultancy projects for a wide range of organisations.

After operating for 32 years, the decision was taken to close LISU in early 2019. LISU staff would like to thank all the libraries, clients and colleagues/institutions we have worked with over the years for their help and support and to wish you all the best for the future.
