Improving library performance : quantitative approaches to library planning by Duane Webster( Book )
4 editions published between 1977 and 1979 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
The use of analytical models and quantitative methods for both short- and long-range problem solving offer library managers an excellent opportunity to improve and rationalize decision-making for strategic and organizational planning. The first step is to identify the problems confronting the library and understand its current capabilities. Several dimensions of planning--scope, time frame, nature of decision, and staff involvement--must be considered in the development of a planning strategy. Recognizing these dimensions, planners will be able to focus on the critical issues and to apply the most appropriate quantitative and computational techniques. Critical issues that demand primary attention in the planning process include the information system needed to support strategic planning, the allocation of resources, the analytical approaches to understanding the library environment, the relationships of organizational processes and climate to effective planning, and the assessment of library performance. A comprehensive planning framework should approach the library as a complex dynamic system with interdependent relationships and changing characteristics. Utilization of decision models developed for libraries and computer applications, along with proper staff management, make efficient library planning possible. (Cwm)

The Staff Development Implications of Management Self-Study by Duane Webster( Book )
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The Management Review and Analysis Program (mrap) provides resources and guidelines for a research library to use in conducting an internal assessment of management practices. The mrap self-study project has two components: a procedural methodology for conducting the analysis, and a conceptual framework provided to assist in evaluation. The study normally occurs over one year and a second year is generally devoted to the implementation of study results. Participating libraries have access to the program manual, data collection instruments, group development exercises, and other resources including consultation and personal assistance. Experience applying mrap to library problems provides information on organizational learning and information on common barriers which may limit growth and development of library staff. (Ch)
