10 10 APPROACH Performance indicator is defined as an expression (which may be numeric, symbolic or verbal) used to characterise activities (events, objects, persons) both in quantitative and qualitative terms in order to assess the value of the activities characterised, and the associated method.(ISO, 2008) The objective is to provide a self-diagnosis enabling us to identify and solve problems quickly. Two performance indicators by ISO(2008) were used: collection use and speed of technical processing 10

11 11 FINDINGS Collection Loans per capita In-library use per capita Median time of document processing 11

12 12 LOANS PER CAPITA Objective: asses the rate of use of library collection by the population to be served Year Rate
