Recommendation 1: Benchmarking is essential, your administrators do it for themselves and will be glad if you do too. What's important is that you're in their business, only second in importance is that you happen to work in a Library of sorts. Participate in their world like any other professional does.
Recommendation 2: Even if your benchmarking shows you something that might be negative for your service, don't hide it! Use it to learn and redefine your Mission, Vision and/or goals to better your work!
Recommendation 3: Don't be an ostrich! Sticking your head in the sand wont change the fact that benchmarking is happening. It's a pretty safe bet to say that even if you're not doing it, your administrators are for you. You have the ability to use benchmarking to your benefit before others may use it to your detriment.
