Two papers on library statistics describe national programs to collect such statistics in a Western European country and a developing country in Africa: "Establishment and Organisation of National Library Statistics: The Nigerian Experience," by J. A. Dosunmu; and "German Library Statistics," by Peter Gruber. Dosunmu's paper describes the objectives and activities of a task force established by the Nigerian Library Association to gather and compile statistics on libraries in Nigeria. A list of definitions and instructions and a questionnaire on library statistics prepared for UNESCO by the task force accompany the text. Gruber's paper describes the development and publication of German library statistics and outlines the types of statistics contained in the publications. A table listing the number of libraries in the Federal Republic of Germany according to size of holdings is included. (JL)
