Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


Taking a management position in a new library or being promoted to a higher position in your library means a new approach to interpersonal relations. How to make this transition can be a challenge. This book provides the information you need to learn so you can become an effective leader and to recognize and circumvent the legal pitfalls that you may find in your path. Written in reader-friendly language, two seasoned veterans share their experiences and the experiences of others in this introduction to managing people. Managing a small library requires skills in working with personnel, the library board, patrons, and the key people in the community. Understanding these requirements will help the person with no formal education to be a more effective administrator in this setting.
