In order for any library to achieve its mission and goals in the community, it must effectively manage staff, the collection, technology, and the facility itself. Managing for Results will help you identify key resources, make choices among different library priorities, and assign or reallocate resources to achieve results.

Numerous workforms are included that will aid you in collecting and analyzing the information needed to correctly allocate resources, such as:
-- Number of professional staff needed
-- How to budget for library materials
-- Amount of space needed for programs
-- Type and amount of software/hardware needed

Using the guidelines and workforms, you can focus on your library's needs and objectives, and determine how best to accomplish them.

About the Author:

Sandra Nelson is a consultant, speaker, trainer, and writer specializing in public library planning and management issues. She has worked in both small and large public libraries and for two state library agencies. A well-known presenter, she has conducted hundreds of training programs in more than 40 states across the country. Nelson chaired the committee that developed the original Planning for Results: A Public Library Transformation Process, and co-authored Wired for the Future: Developing Your Library Technology Plan and Managing for Results: Effective Resource Allocation for Public Libraries.

From Library Journal:

The authors of Wired for the Future: Developing Your Library Technology Plan (Professional Media, LJ 6/1/99) have teamed up with Ellen Altman, author of numerous works on library administration, to produce this companion to the two-volume Planning for Results: A Public Library Transformation Process (Professional Media, LJ 6/15/98). If your library has gone through the planning for results process and you are unsure what to do next, this volume will help you gather the data on the resources you need to implement your plan. Topics addressed include an overview of resource allocation, specifics on managing staff, collections, and facilities, and a brief look at managing technology. For each of the management issues addressed, a series of reproducible workforms (with a permission notice on each) is included. As the authors point out frequently, if you do not yet know what you are trying to accomplish, then this is not the book for you. While written for public libraries, and specifically for those that have used the Planning for Results framework to identify priorities, this book has something to offer to any library making decisions about how to deploy, or redeploy, resources to accomplish specific results. Recommended for all public libraries and library science collections--Mary A. Martin, New Hampshire State Lib., Concord
