Fundamentals of library supervision by Joan Giesecke( )

27 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 4,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation. 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. ... Adapted from cover

Scenario planning for libraries by Joan Giesecke( )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In scenario planning, you develop stories about possible futures. Stories encourage an imaginative team approach to designing strategies that move the organization forward no matter what the future holds. You may apply scenario planning in a large-scale stategic overhaul, as described in the case study of Arlington County (Virginia) Public Libraries, or you may use it to address a specific issue, as described in the consideration of a student technology fee at a major research university." "Scenario Planning for Libraries applies this successful model from the business world to the unique library environment."--Jacket
Academic librarians as emotionally intelligent leaders( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Academic Librarians as Emotionally Intelligent Leaders, Hernon and company present a solid overview of EI, its connection to other leadership theories, and its particular application to academic librarianship. By moving beyond basic "people skills," they claim, library leaders can come to appreciate not only the unique challenges of personal and organizational growth, but how their own reactions and feelings are perceived by others. Particularly noteworthy is a strong focus on issues of diversity, including a chapter on how librarians of color regularly engage in self-renewal and restoration."--Jacket

In the selected paper for the morning session, "Preservation Literacy: Needs and Solutions in Nebraska," Katherine Walter reviewed the progress that has been made in creating a state-wide plan for preservation in Nebraska. Seven other papers were presented during the afternoon session: (1) "Extending the Academic Library: Outreach to School and Community" (Janet Brumm, Sue Buryanek, Kathleen Tooker); (2) "Information Literacy and Education Students: The Planning Stage at Kearney State College" (Janet Wilke); (3) "Libraries and Sick Building Syndrome: Can Anything Be Done?"

Topics addressed by these papers include ways in which colleges in the state are providing services to the various off-campus classes to high school students; changes in education that affect the roles of libraries; programs for including library instruction in the curriculum in a meaningful way; and current awareness services used to help faculty stay current in their own fields.
