Long considered the standard text in college library administration, this completely reorganized and rewritten edition addresses the dramatic changes experienced by both the academic and the library worlds since publication of the fourth revision in 1974. Preserving the sensible approach adopted by Guy R. Lyle-a combination of theory and practical advice-this edition, like its predecessors, covers the entire range of college library concerns, including policies, procedures, resources, and human relations. New emphases have been placed on communication, finances, and politics, topics of major importance in an increasingly competitive academic environment. Among the completely new chapters are 'The Campus Inventory,' 'Technology and Integrated Library Systems,' 'Educating the Library User,' and 'The Director.'
