Creative Planning for Library Administration: Leadership for the Future
In the seven chapters of this helpful new book, the topics of planning and creativity as they apply to the management of academic libraries are discussed fully, with specific examples and detailed guidelines. Creative Planning for Library Administration will be a helpful resource for administrators, library consultants, and academic librarians alike. Topics such as involving all members of the library staff in decisionmaking and encouraging creativity in an unstable work environment are explored, as are new developments like performance measures. The phrase “Create your own future” serves as the foundation for this timely new book, and the reader is encouraged to come up with new and innovative ways to organize, access, and interpret the world's store of information.
