LibPMC brings together practitioners, researchers, educators and students interested in all aspects of performance measurement in library and information services in any context. Library performance measurement (or library assessment) is the endeavouring of determining and communicating how a library is performing, with the aim of driving improvement. There are three key features of library performance measurement: focus on stakeholders, the goal of improving services to meet stakeholder needs, and communication of the results and outcomes. Past conferences have provided a mix of invited speakers, contributed papers and workshops designed to stimulate discussion, provide ideas for measuring and improving library performance, and develop new concepts and techniques to advance the field. Additional information about the conference, including links to past proceedings, are available on our website: https://libraryperformance.org/.
