This book offers real life examples of librarians who use their knowledge and skill to project influence, and turn the tide in their, and their library's, favour. It offers first hand and clear examples to help librarians learn to use their influence effectively, for the betterment of their library and their career. Opening chapters cover visualizing data, as well as networking and strategic alignment. Following chapters discuss influence without authority-making fierce allies, communicating results in accessible language and user-centred planning. Closing chapters address using accreditation and regulation reporting to better position the library, as well as political positioning and outcome assessment."@en ;
