  • Description

Staggering reductions in library funding are forcing library managers to get even more creative about staff development which is needed more now than ever as library usage increases. In Staff Development on a Shoestring, former New Jersey Library Association President and award-winning library director Marcia Trotta details innovative in-house training solutions, co-partnership opportunities, distance learning programs, and case studies from around the world. Managers and training coordinators who read this helpful guide will understand how to make smart programming and resource decisions and how to use appropriate web technologies, and they will have customized resources at their fingertips. The practical solutions Trotta presents will help readers feel energized, empowered, and confident in applying the unique approach she takes to encouraging staff learning and professional development.

To round out Staff Development on a Shoestring, Trotta includes many more than 30 checklists, outlines, surveys, and handouts ready for readers to quickly adapt to their library, plus a directory of resources for staff development and continuing education. Whatever the size of your budget, Staff Development on a Shoestring will help your library’s staff stay current with their skills and, in turn, maintain quality public service.
