A Good Place to Start


Administration and management of a library is a complex and constantly changing process that requires a number of skills and knowledge in a variety of fields.

Due to the complexity of the subject of library administration and management it can be difficult to know where to start when looking for information.  There are two books that I can recommend if you would like a good overview of what library administration and management is:

Stueart, R.D. and Moran B., Library and Information Center Management, 7th ed. Westport  Con.: Libraries Unlimited, 2002. 




Chemers, Martin M., An Integrative Theory of Leadership, Mahway, NJ: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, 1997.






These books will provide a good knowledge base for you as you learn more about library administration and management.
