Overview

Safely guide your library into the new millennium!

Like so much else in the information professions, leadership styles are being forced to change to meet the demands of technological innovation. Leadership in the Library and Information Science Professions is among the first books to focus on this increasingly important job qualification. It offers practical advice for developing strong, flexible, and creative leadership skills in yourself and your staff.

This fascinating volume stresses the leadership needed to manage change. The essential skills taught here will help you update library services at a reasonable pace while preserving valuable low-tech alternatives. As one chapter recommends, “Every librarian at every level should have ready an answer-multiple answers-to the ubiquitous questions: Why do we still need libraries when everything is on the Web? How can you justify an expanding budget in the Internet Age?”

Leadership in the Library and Information Science Professions offers fresh ideas for developing and using leadership skills, including:

  • recruiting tips for identifying potential leaders
  • staff training and development
  • restructuring the organization to encourage full staff participation
  • budget strategies for successful leaders
  • issues of gender and ethnic diversity
  • evaluating and assessing leadership

    Leadership in the Library and Information Science Professions is an essential resource for library administrators and staff. By developing your leadership skills and those of your staff, you can confidently face the hectic pace of change in the information sciences.

Editorial Reviews

Jane B. Robbins
A fine volume that would make a good textbook for a leadership course or could well serve as a source for supplemental readings in a general management course. Excellent chapters by Betty J. Turock on women and leadership and Stuart Glogoff on information technology in the virtual library are alone worth the price of the book. Thorough . . . Mark Winston's choice of authors is remarkable.
Booknews
This collection of ten essays addresses a number of important leadership issues, including the challenges and opportunities for leadership in organizations, the professional development needs of leaders, the knowledge and competencies required of effective leaders in relation to information technology and financial management, leadership evaluation and assessment, and the relationship of leadership to other contemporary issues (feminism, diversity, globalization). For library administrators and staff. Co-published simultaneously as , Volume 32, Numbers 3/4 2001. Winston teaches at Rutgers U. School of Communication, Information and Library Studies.
