Description

This title covers the practical side of being an academic librarian - a role that has undergone a large degree of change in recent years. It outlines and describes the skills necessary to succeed in these large, and often complex organizations. The book includes tools and techniques for an academic librarian for managing time, meetings, projects, publishing and research, communications (paper and electronic), the basics of supervision, and how to work in a large organization. The title: explains how, in practical terms, to stay organized, communicate successfully, network and navigate through an often politicised environment; applies business practices to the field of librarianship; shows how to use organizational behaviour techniques to manage yourself and your work; and provides a plan for moving up through the organization.
