  • Description

Guiding staff and organizations through turbulent times--budget cuts, personnel shortages, new technologies, reorganization and consolidation--is an absolutely necessary skill for today’s library managers. Susan Curzon, one of Library Journal’s Librarians of the Year, has completely revised her classic change how-to, recommended as “required reading” by Online. She outlines the step-by-step processes and detailed instructions necessary for conceptualizing the issues; planning; preparing; decision-making; controlling resistance;; and implementing changes. Practical guidance for dealing with technology’s impact on libraries, applying the latest research in change management, and developing new strategies for coping with change are included. An all new “Teaching Tools” section--featuring sample scenarios; questions and discussion points; coaching prompts; motivational tips; and more--helps administrators share the knowledge with their staffs and colleagues. Here is the How-To to help you not only cope--but thrive--in our constantly changing library environment.
