Library managers and supervisors face staffing decisions every day. When priorities change quickly-whether relating to diversity, legal challenges, new technology, or simply a desire to build an exciting team and bring people together to do their best-it takes more than good intentions to achieve results. Two experienced library managers explain how to create a productive workplace, as they weave practical advice and expert commentary into an easy-to-use resource. Drawing both from common sense and from the experience and insights of the pros, they address an increasingly turbulent library environment. They focus on daily, real-world practices with specific strategies for brand-new supervisory staff and proven advice on practical supervisory issues like hiring, firing, interviewing, and training. Guiding supervisors through the intricate process of managing others, this comprehensive handbook addresses the fundamental issues facing new managers. It also serves as a welcome refresher and reference for experienced managers facing new challenges in the complex and changing environments in their libraries.
