Dear Hena S Gupta,

Yes, there is International Standard called "ANSI/NISO Z39.7 -2004
Information Services and Use: Metrics & statistics for libraries and
information providers--Data Dictionary". This standard has been developed by
the National Information Standard Organization (NISO), USA, identifies
categories for basic library statistical data reported at the national
level, and provides associated definitions of terms. In doing so it deals
with the following areas: reporting unit and target population, human
resources, collection resources, infrastructure, finances, and services. In
addition, the standard identifies new measures associated with networked
services, databases, and performance. The standard is not intended to be
comprehensive in scope. Instead, it presents a framework for comparable
library data by describing common elements pertaining to libraries of
various types in the US. It does not address detailed statistics for
specific areas where it seems more appropriate for experts in those areas to
make recommendations (e.g., music, government documents, maps). Section 5 of
this standard deals with the "Infrastructure", the website is
http://www.niso.org/emetrics/current/section5.html. This standard has been
developed for all kind of libraries, where you can look at your special
library requirement.

I hope this will help you.
