Now you’re a manager. Maybe you sought the position and interviewed for it, or maybe you were appointed to fill a need. Perhaps your long-term goal is upper-level library management, or maybe you’re happy where you are and aren’t sure how you’d like your career to progress.  Whatever the case, this guide will provide you with quick, easy-to-implement tips and strategies for tackling the most common issues encountered by mid-level managers in an academic library.  

With ten chapters covering everything from building teams to creating a respectful workplace to managing university politics, Now You’re a Manager provides lists, exercises, and techniques for assembling and managing an effective, happy team. 

Many of us were never taught how to be managers before we began managing. This book is designed to meet the specific needs of new mid-level managers in academic libraries, and can be used for individual use and group discussion, and by librarians and paraprofessionals who manage teams and departments.
