Just because a set of responsibilities isn't formally called management doesn't mean that it isn't management. And this vital text speaks to a reality that all current professionals already know: that is, everyone studying to enter the profession needs an introduction to the topic of management. Because no matter what one's role in an academic or public library context, it will involve decision-making, planning, and organization skills. Newly revised and updated, this book pulls together management best practices from library management experts teaching in LIS programs across the U.S. and Canada. Among the many topics discussed areclassic and contemporary theories of management, and how they apply to the library;human resource planning;marketing and public relations;negotiations, mediation, and financial management of the library;facilities management;information technology management and future trends;change management, organizational culture; andethics and confidentiality.
In addition to providing students with a solid foundation in library management, with its structured, practical knowledge this impressive volume will also benefit experienced managers.
