Julie Todaro, one of America's leading management experts, posits a new paradigm for planning, administering, and assessing library services. She explains each facet of administering both "old" (physical) and "new" (virtual) libraries. Library Management for the Digital Age covers hierarchies, policies, communication, working relationships, facilities, human resources, settings, customer services, budgeting, emergency management, appendixes including model positions descriptions, interview questions, evaluation forms, and other necessary management tools. Each chapter concludes with an illustration of the old-to-new paradigm shift in that particular aspect of management as well as concise case studies that illustrate the real-world nature of the shift and discussion questions to facilitate active learning. A platinum-quality editorial board comprised of both LIS faculty and expert library managers has reviewed this book in order to ensure authority. - Publisher."@en ;
