  • Description

Whether the HR function in your library is handled by an entire department, or a single individual, this nuts-and-bolts primer is a treasure trove of templates, forms, samples, and checklists that you can start using today. Organized in a QandA format for quick reference, the author asks the everyday questions that few other guides bother to address. How do you write a job description? What kinds of questions should I ask in the interview? How should star employees be recognized? What are the most important elements in training staff? How do we handle a Reduction in Force? Every answer is specifically tailored to libraries' particular needs and circumstances. From the basics of hiring and firing, training, evaluation, legal requirements, recruitment and retention to hot topics like attracting minorities to librarianship, the "graying" of the library workforce, technologies useful for HR tasks, and more, this book gives you the full range of need-to-know information.

Particularly useful for students, new professionals, and occasional or "accidental" HR managers who need a reference to consult as issues arise, this book is the ideal go-to guide for quick, well informed advice, useful summaries of the most important research and professional resources, and proven HR tools for every kind of library.
