   schema:reviewBody ""Managing for Results requires librarians to take a proactive approach to marshaling and managing all of the library's resources effectively. The key to successfully allocating resources is first knowing what you want to accomplish. Most of a library's resources are already allocated to some objective or another. However, Managing for Results helps you evaluate whether resources are being used to achieve the real objectives of the library in the community. This may mean reallocating resources to be sure that they are used to achieve the library's mission, serve the community, and give patrons what they need and want." "The workforms are designed to enable librarians to identify, collect, and analyze the information needed to correctly allocate resources for library activities. They include step-by-step processes to determine the number of professional staff needed, how to budget for library materials, the amount of space needed for programs, and the type and amount of software and hardware needed for the community served."--Jacket." ;
