About the Author:

Jeannette Woodward is a principal of Wind River Library and Nonprofit Consulting. After a career in academic library administration, she began a second career in public libraries in the foothills of the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming. Woodward is the author of several books, including The Customer-Driven Academic Library (2009), What Every Librarian Should Know about Electronic Privacy (2007), Nonprofit Essentials: Managing Technology (2006), Creating the Customer-Driven Library: Building on the Bookstore Model (2005), and the first edition of Countdown to a New Library: Managing the Building Project (2000). She holds a master's degree in library and information science from Rutgers University, with doctoral study at the University of Texas at Austin.

Review:

..".very practical and realistic in its approach, looking at the advantages and disadvantages of individual topics, examining alternative solutions, and neatly summarising particular issues."

"What makes Woodward's book successful, besides her very thorough research and presentation of it, is her inclusion of tips in each section, as well as tales from those who have been through the 'construction wars.'"

..".if your library is one of those undergoing, or about to undergo, construction work, you'll find [this book] especially helpful... Recommended."

"Woodward's very practical, sensible book will be a boon to both novice and veteran librarians... [T]he hours invested in reading this book as an introductory text and in returning to it as a reference guide will pay ongoing dividends."
