Indicator-board at the University library of Paris VI

The University library of Paris VI has undertaken to evaluate its services during 2 years, using documentary and financial indicator-boards. The ex-DBMIST wanted them to be complementary to the traditionnal annual inquiries (ESGBU). In the documentary indicator-board, the indicators concerning the professionnal staff, the evolution of the audience, the activities of the different sections of the library and the quality of contributed services were especially examined. The results of the calculations of the activities indexes in the different sections and of the production load of each grade of employees were also developped. The financial indicator-board has been tested and is still used for everyday management in the University library.
