Library Management for the Digital Age : A New Paradigm
This revolutionary introduction to library management is the first conceived in and written for a digital age. Julie Todaro, one of America's leading management experts, posits a new paradigm for planning, administering, and assessing library services. She explains each facet of administering both "old" (physical) and "new" (virtual) libraries. Library Management for the Digital Age covers *hierarchies, *policies, *communication, *working relationships, *facilities, *human resources, *settings, *customer services, *budgeting, *emergency management, *appendixes including model positions descriptions, interview questions, evaluation forms, and other necessary management tools. Each chapter concludes with an illustration of the old-to-new paradigm shift in that particular aspect of management as well as concise case studies that illustrate the real-world nature of the shift and discussion questions to facilitate active learning.
