ABSTRACT
Performance competition of municipalities, universities and libraries still is in great demand while at the same time being disputed, as the current discussion on faculty and interdisciplinary level shows. Do the presently used measuring instruments need specific modifications or will only a complete reorientation help? In order to take a look into the future of performance competition - especially in the library sector - the common management commission of the German Library Association and The Association of German Librarians held a Round Table conference on 15th and 16th September 2014. This article gives a survey of the discussion.
