Abstract

The second edition of Library Management 101: A Practical Guide is a holistic view of management practices in libraries. It is a valuable textbook and a useful guide for any stage of a person’s career. It is also a great resource for those places of employment where training and support in human resources is limited. Early on, the authors note that the text is framed in Western culture for their intended audience and constituency and that they believe that “all of us are managing something all the time,” whether it is formally called “management” or not (p. xi). These basic notions set the tone for the book and assist the reader’s understanding of the material shared.
