Abstract:

The book serves as a supplemental guide to educating new law library directors. Practical in nature, it focuses on the pieces of directors' jobs that are not explicit in any written description of the job. Most chapters focus on one of the director's roles (e.g., mentor, mediator, fundraiser, opportunity seeker, politician, or committee member). Each starts with a case study to provide a realistic context in which to examine the subject, followed by analysis and commentary by successful, sitting directors. When possible, more than one commenter on a fact pattern was provided, to allow for a diversity of opinions and to highlight idea-generation over any specific solution. Other chapters cover basic issues such privacy, finances, data, andwhen (and how) to say no.--Résumé de l'éditeur.
