14th International Conference

The 14th International Conference on Performance Measurement in Libraries took place 2-4 November 2021, in an entirely online format.

We wish to thank all of our presenters, panelists and our 297 registered delegates for making the conference a great success!

Powerpoint slides from presentations and recordings of the sessions are now all available to registered delegates. Please see the updated Guide for Conference Delegates below on how to access recordings (please note that access to recordings will expire 60 days after they were published).

We would also like to thank our sponsors EBSCO (gold sponsor) and Emerald Publishing (silver sponsor) for making it possible for us to offer delegates to register at no cost, if cost would have prohibited their attendance.

Additional information on LibPMC Community Interest Company

The International Conference on Performance Measurement has been running biennially since 1995. In its 25-year history, it has been supported by professional societies, library schools, national and university libraries alike. To ensure future stability of the conference the Library Performance Measurement Conference has formally registered as a Community Interest Company (CIC) in the UK. The conference has always operated on a cost-recovery basis only; and the CIC guarantees that any surplus is reinvested into future conferences. A small team of people act as non-salaried Directors of the CIC, ensuring it continues to provide a forum for the Library and Information Professional Community.
