Very often in the operation of two-year and other small academic libraries there are common issues and concerns. Librarians working in such institutions take the opportunity to share current thinking on such topics as managing change, accreditation standards, auxiliary roles and responsibilities on the campus, marketing library services, collection development, personnel issues, cooperation with other institutions, coping with technology, and a host of unusual problems. The flat hierarchy in two-year and other small academic libraries does not always avail front-line librarians a smooth transition to management roles. Very often in the operation of these libraries there are common issues and concerns, which can be grouped under broad headings such as Management Issues, Personnel, Operations and Collection Requirements. The intent of this book is to offer librarians working in such institutions the opportunity to share current thinking on topics that fall under these broad headings. Topics of interest include managing change, accreditation standards, auxiliary roles and responsibilities on the campus, marketing library services, collection development personnel issues, cooperation with other institutions, coping with technology and unusual problems.

MEDIA REVIEWS
" _" -
"This is a rare look at library management in the community college context, and should prove useful to new and seasoned managers alike." - Portal
"[A] fine collection of essays written by experienced, respected librarians in the field. I wish I had it by my side when I stumbled into the surprisingly rewarding job of a community college library director three years ago....What makes this work unique is that it gives the library manager information from three perspectives: reference and collection management librarians on the front line; professional experts from the outside fields of human resource management and marketing; and experienced directors and deans. Especially useful are the numerous essays by community college library administrators all brought together in a convenient single volume. For the new library manager, these three different perspectives are all useful." - Project Muse
