Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Humanistic Management by Teamwork (HMBT) is a new leadership paradigm that emphasizes employee development and the use of a team approach for executing organizational and mission-oriented strategies. After examining the contemporary library in the context of global forces, megatrends, and national imperatives that influence the making of academic libraries, this text presents HMBT as a viable way for academic libraries to successfully negotiate the challenges of the future. For academic library administrators and others interested in library management. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
