Although the positions of assistant or associate university librarians and deans are considered a training ground for upward movement in the profession, there are surprisingly very few mentoring experiences available. The Associate University Librarian Handbook: A Resource Guide looks to change that. Covering such topics as managing change, funding, research, career management, and more, this book will be a valuable tool and guide for both those in the position of associate university librarian and for those aspiring to get there.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Geared for current and future associate university librarians and deans, the work fills a gap in the literature for handbooks and sourcebooks for this specific position. Beginning with an introductory section that introduces the book as a whole and defines the Associate University Librarian, the work next presents two case studies on managing change as an associate university librarian, followed by five chapters on funding the library enterprise and managing resources. The fourth section presents three chapters on managing your career and development, while the fifth provides two chapters for the associate university librarian taking on an interim leadership role. This work is of use for practicing librarians in academic environments who are looking to move up to a higher position, and for those already working as associate university librarians. * American Reference Books Annual *
Fortunately, much of the advice provided in this collection's 17 papers is equally useful for librarians in management positions in any library. The papers are written by a well-credentialed and multi-skilled group of senior university librarians, and each concludes with an extensive list of further reading options for each topic. In addition to the informative collection of papers in the handbook, Eden also directs his readers to the Taiga Forum (www.taiga-forum.org), which maintains a discussion board facilitating the exchange of views on issues relevant to managing university libraries. The Associate University Librarian Handbook is well set out - with a clear and informative contents page and a good index - easy to read and to refer to as needed. It provides invaluable career advice for those in the position of associate university librarian and those aspiring to attain the position, as well as senior librarians and library managers in any library sphere looking to move up the career ladder * Australian Library Journal *
