Created to fill a surprising educational void, this edited volume focuses on best practices from library management experts teaching in LIS programs across the country. Among the many topics discussed are

Classic and modern theories of management, and how they apply to the library
Human resource planning
Marketing and public relations
Negotiations, mediation, and financial management of the library
Facilities management
In addition to providing students with a solid foundation in library management, experienced managers will also benefit from the structured, practical knowledge included in this impressive volume.
