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

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

Review: Library and Information Center Management

User Review  - Jeffrey - Goodreads

This book is not as terrible as many of these reviews make it out to be. I find it to be written at a high school level and it appears to have been written assuming the reader has never, ever been in the workforce.

User Review  - Sarah - Goodreads

It is very difficult for me to feel I have learned from a book when the editors could not bother to double-check the basics : spelling, punctuation, and verb tense. This textbook could have helped me if it hadn't distracted me with its bad grammar. Read full review

Review: Library and Information Center Management

User Review  - Lila Brantley - Goodreads

This isn't the worst text book I've ever read, but it wasn't the best either. It used everyday language to explain management concepts that often seemed common sense. It didn't go in to much detail about aspects that seem important. I mean, this is a graduate class for jeeze sake! Read full review
