The practical library manager.

Peter G. Underwood,


There is a need for guidance for those faced with the challenge of day-to-day administration and running of small to
medium-size libraries of all kinds. The education of library and information science workers at the professional level is
usually pitched at a general level, seeking to equip new entrants to the career with sufficient knowledge of principles so
that they can make informed decisions as needs change. Some knowledge of practice is acquired through fieldwork but it
is during the period of introduction to a new job, subsequent mentoring and practice that most detailed practical
knowledge is acquired. Little wonder, then, that there is a market for a guide of this kind.
