This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 2789:1974). Aims at giving guidance to the international library community on the keeping of library statistics for the purposes of international reporting. ISO 2789 was prepared in a close cooperation between UNESCO and ISO. It will have the effect that statistics produced by different libraries will be more directly comparable. The definitions presented are designed for statistical purposes only.
