This new, current, and comprehensive introduction to the management of libraries is both a successor to and a revision of Evans's classic Management Techniques for Librarians . The focus is exclusively on library and other information environments and provides conceptual overviews and library/information examples to illustrate the basic skills good library managers must exercise: how to plan; how to delegate; how to make decisions; how to communicate; and how to lead. Equal emphasis is placed on managing a library's resources-its people, its money, its technology, and its building.
Including timely issues such as women in management and diversity as well as practical charts and forms, this text will appeal to LIS educators, librarians in new management positions, and experienced librarians in management positions who want to become more effective. A companion Web page features readings on topics such as women in library management, cultural diversity, management goals, and career development, as well as annual reviews of library management literature.
