  • Description

Rebecca Brumley, author of the highly-praised Public Library Manager’s Forms, Policies, and Procedures Handbook, returns with a new, comprehensive guide to public library job descriptions. Featuring more than 150 job titles addressing the full scope of public library functions, this resource includes more than 250 proven and effective job descriptions. Culled from libraries across North America, each is reproduced in its entirety--general summary; functions and responsibilities; knowledge, skills, and abilities; education, experience, and training; licensing requirements; and more. Each section includes an overview of the job title, important considerations, and essential elements for inclusion. Brumley covers the basics of composing job descriptions--including EEOC considerations; fact gathering; defining supervision; drafting job summaries; re-evaluating descriptions; and more. The companion CD-ROM reproduces all of the entries allowing easy modification to libraries’ specific needs. Comprehensive and authoritative, this is an important, time-saving tool for libraries seeking to build successful staffs for the future.
