Leadership and Management Principles in Libraries in Developing Countries is a collection of selected entries to the Special Libraries Association Leadership and Management Division’s 2003 International Paper Competition for special librarians in developing countries. Each author describes the effective leadership and management that made their special library initiatives successful, providing references, tables, step-by-step instructions, and handy checklists for other librarians to use.
In Leadership and Management Principles in Libraries in Developing Countries, library officials discuss the development of successful programs at special libraries such as:

  • the Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi, India where a team of people with diverse backgrounds worked together to digitally modernize their traditional library
  • the Agricultural Libraries and Special Libraries in Tropical Biology located in Indonesia where special librarians found innovative ways to access funding support and expertise from foreign institutions, international relief agencies, and library associations
  • the Information Resource Centre at The Mildmay Centre in Kampala, Uganda where the new Mobile Patient Library Services project provides information materials to patients with HIV/AIDS and their caregivers
  • the American Cultural Center Library (now called the Rosa Parks Library) in Niamey, Niger where the library was restructured from a simple reading room into a diverse cultural resource of exhibitions, seminars, and multilingual reference materials
  • the Federal Ministry of Industry headquarters Library in Nigeria where the library transformation was made possible through good leadership style, managerial expertise, and effective staff organization
  • the University of Swaziland Libraries in Swaziland where a strategic planning initiative helped the library widen Internet access, secure subscription funding for database access, and purchase updated equipment to enrich the instructional, research, and administrative functions of the library
This book represents a body of practical experience, problems, lessons, and techniques that can be shared and tried by those who want to know more about or deal with the special needs and circumstances of librarians in developing countries. Leadership and Management Principles in Libraries in Developing Countries will show you how to improve both service and outreach to your local community by becoming a leader at your special library, whether you are the librarian, mid-level manager, director, or information consultant. Library science faculty and students will also find that this book illustrates the benefits of good leadership and management.
