Administration and management of school libraries presents the modern librarian a myriad of challenges, including leadership and effective interpersonal relationships, implementation of policy and procedures, design of resource floor plans and layouts, and planning ahead for future expansion or technological updates. A successful librarian must clearly understand the principles of proper library administration, and be able to execute to put that theory into action in the real world.Leading School Libraries: A Management Text is intended to be the leading management text for the administration class in school library preparation. Written from a 21st-century perspective, coauthors Gail Dickinson and Judi Repman present a refreshing and novel way of looking at school library administration, bringing an atmosphere of creative reflection to what can sometimes be dry subject matter. This book covers new standards and guidelines to help librarians ensure their compliance with recent state and national requirements, and addresses the use of the latest technology and e-tools to improve library users' experiences.
