9781555705237: Neal Schuman Directory of Public Library Job Descriptions

Whether you're fully staffed or growing, this comprehensive and authoritative handbook is the time-saving tool you need to build successful staffs for the future. Rebecca Brumley, author of the highly-praised Public Library Manager's Forms, Policies, and Procedures Handbook, returns with this new guide to public library job descriptions - featuring more than 150 job titles that address the full scope of public library functions. Culled from libraries across North America, each job description is reproduced in its entirety, including: General summary; Functions and responsibilities; Knowledge and education; Skills and abilities; Experience and training, and Licensing requirements. Each section of the book includes an overview of the job title, important considerations, and essential elements for inclusion. Brumley covers the basics of composing job descriptions, including EEOC considerations, fact gathering, defining supervision, drafting job summaries, re-evaluating descriptions, and more. The companion CD-ROM reproduces all of the entries allowing easy modification to libraries' specific needs.

From Booklist:

This compilation contains 273 job descriptions drawn from 92 U.S. public libraries. Twenty major job categories from "Administration" to "Volunteers--Miscellaneous" are subdivided by title, and under each title several different jobs might be listed. For example, under Librarian in the "Children's and Youth Services" chapter, one finds descriptions for Children's Librarian, Children's Services Manager, and Youth Librarian, among others. Each entry is organized into standardized areas covering functions and responsibilities, knowledge and skills, tools and equipment, work environment, and more. A job--description writer's tool kit to draft accurate, clear statements and a CD-ROM that reproduces all entries in Microsoft Word are included. This practical volume, developed from actual job descriptions, should be helpful to most public libraries that need to create or revise position descriptions. Patricia Hogan
