About the Author:

At the University of Wisconsin Madison since 1985, Jane Pearlmutter has been responsible for organizing, marketing, and often teaching many continuing education programs in library and information studies, including core courses for public library director certification and leadership training for state library agencies. She also teaches graduate courses in management and collection development. An active member of the Wisconsin Library Association, Jane has been involved in advocacy and long-range planning for public libraries at the local, state, and national levels.

As a department head/assistant director (1978-1986) and library director (1986-2008), Paul Nelson has extensive experience in all aspects of public library administration: governance, advocacy, policy development, budgeting, personnel management, facilities planning, marketing, and long-range planning. Since the mid-1980s, he has provided more than one hundred workshops on these subjects to library systems in the upper Midwest. As Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin Madison School of Library and Information Studies, he teaches a reference and information services course and courses in public library management and library advocacy.

Review:

"A vitally useful handbook." --Midwest Book Review
