Review: Library and Information Center Management

User Review  - Rob - Goodreads

The book is a useful and comprehensive introduction to management (and leadership) within a library context. However, it's rather wordy; sometimes the authors repeat themselves unnecessarily. Read full review

Review: Library and Information Center Management

User Review  - Sarah - Goodreads

Lots of typos. Lots of repetition. But the chapters are quick, easy reads. A good 101 book, but it just brushes the surface of everything. If this is a topic you're interested in, it will leave you wanting more. For me just trying to get through the class, it was a good read. Read full review
