Abstract:

In today's economic climate, reduced library funding means reduced staffing levels, leaving the remaining staff to take on specialized responsibilities -- including budgeting and financial forecasting. This book highlights the importance of good financial and cost management in libraries and information centres to make use of available resources and illustrates how to maintain user services.

The new edition of this practical handbook applies the current research and theory of financial management techniques to situations faced in libraries and information services, taking the reader step by step through the managerial responsibilities required to maintain financial control.
