What does successful academic library management look like in the real world? A team of editors, all administrators at large research libraries, here present a selection of case studies which dive deeply into the subject to answer that question. Featuring contributions from a range of practicing academic library managers, this book

  • spotlights case studies equally useful for LIS students and current managers;
  • touches upon such key issues as human resource planning, public relations, financial management, organizational culture, and ethics and confidentiality;
  • examines how to manage radical change, using project management methodology to reorganize technical services, creating a new liaison service model, advancing a collaborative future, and setting up on-the-spot mentoring;
  • discusses digital planning for archives and special collections;
  • rejects “one size fits all” solutions to common challenges in academic libraries in favor of creative problem solving; and
  • provides guidance on how to use case studies as effective models for positive change at one’s own institution.
LIS instructors, students, and academic library practitioners will all find enrichment from this selection of case studies.
