Since running a small library—public, academic, school, or special—often means making do with little or no staff, this challenging task calls for its own set of skills and expertise. That's where Moorman's how-to manual comes in, offering guidance on every essential aspect of what it takes to run a small library. Fully revised and updated, including a new chapter on digital library services, the second edition covers such day-to-day issues as

  • Budgeting, from planning to advocacy
  • Developing and implementing policies and procedures
  • Maintaining facilities
  • Acquisition, cataloging, and collection development and management on a shoestring
  • Circulation
  • Programming, outreach, and community partnerships
  • Library technology, from computers and networks to automation systems and beyond

    Also featured is an updated resource section listing furniture, automation, book, and periodical vendors; electronic discussion and support groups; professional organizations; and resources for more information. This book is a must-have for any solo librarian or library manager with a small staff.
