  • Our profession needs better trained managers at all levels. but with lingering cuts in professional development budgets, it s more challenging than ever for the average librarian to learn these skills in a structured, disciplined way. Wilkins-Jordan's book fills that need, speaking equally to students beginning their LIS education, professionals who are new to management jobs or aspire to them, and experienced practitioners who want to build and update their management skills. Informed by the author's research on critical skill sets, this text explores a variety of managerial topics, fusing theory with a hands-on approach that encourages practical application. Suitable for self-paced study as well as specific guidance on particular subjects, this bookutilizes an engaging tone far removed from the dry manner of a lecture hall, helping to cement knowledge gained in the course of reading.covers ethics, personal career development, human resources, planning, evaluation, budgeting, communication, leadership, advocacy, and many other important management issues.organizes concepts into units that feature case studies, discussion questions, a list of tasks that can be used as assignments, and a bibliography of additional resources.begins with foundational concepts and builds unit-by-unit to increasingly advanced sets of skills. andconcludes by presenting ways to think more broadly about being part of the larger LIS profession.By focusing on building skills for management, rather than just regurgitating management theory, this text will prove valuable for readers at any phase of their careers.
