Here is the basic primer library and information service professionals need to face today’s multiple challenges. Co-authored by a librarian and a management professor, this unique guide introduces and applies the latest administrative concepts to the practice of librarianship.

Key areas covered include organizational structure; human resources management; marketing and user relationships; quality control; finance and resources; environment and context; and strategy planning. Each chapter is supported with relevant examples, case studies, checklists, models, informative tables, and questions for review. Designed to introduce the practice, experience, and theoretical principles of library management, this authoritative and contemporary resource is an ideal LIS textbook as well as solid preparation for new library leaders. Even seasoned veterans looking to improve and update their skills will find much of value here.
