In a world of rapid changes, th ere is a need for leadership and strategic planning based on statistical evidence - evidence based leadership. In Norway, the National Library has led the way in developing indicators for the public and the academic libraries, and these indicators may be u sed either longitudinally or for benchmarking within or between libraries.
