In 2002, the NIST Research Library of the Information Services Division, Technology Services, benchmarked itself against other science and technology libraries. These libraries had similar focus areas and were comparable in size. The study compared library budgets, collection sizes and costs, staffing, and library services. This report outlines the methodology used. Significant findings are documented and further implications for the Research Library are addressed. Lessons learned from the study are also discussed.
