Are circulation statistics our best indicator of success?

The Practical Librarian has an interesting post where she beefs about whether circulation statistics are the best indication we have of library success.  She offers all of the arguments that most of us have thought through one time or another, but follows up by suggesting that we have actual quantifiable library performance standards instead.  As more of our services fall away from the print medium, this seems really pertinent.  Read her original post here.
