...a well-articulated and a consistently organized work. It contains a wealth of suggestions for additional readings that will provide managers with introductory tools for addressing the challenges of library management in the information age...especially useful to graduate students in library and information science studying organization management. Reference and User Services Quarterly, Vol. 45 No. 3, Spring 2006 Prentice provides an inclusive introduction to management principles as they can be applied in today's libraries. Though the book is basic enough to be used as a text in library management classes, its later chapters are practical enough to serve as a reference for those seeking to improve or change either their organizations or personal management activities. Part I provides a comprehensive introduction to the context in which current workplaces thrive, Part II to the theories behind modern organizations and their management. Both are broad enough to apply to nearly any workplace, making this volume useful to practitioners outside the library world. Part III discusses aspects of management as they are more directly applied to libraries and information centers: planning, organizational structure, decision-making, staff, evaluation, finances, facilities and knowledge management. Though the language is sometimes awkward, the basic principles of management and their application are presented in well-digested form. Info Career Trends
