Review:

...Evans and Ward...cover much more territory in much greater depth than the word 'basics' might suggest. --The Australian Library Journal, November 2008

An excellent addition to the library literature and an authoritative guide to all information library managers and future administrators...Highly recommended. --ARBA Vol 39, 2008

Is full of great tips and pertinent references on all sorts of skills and concepts...Easy to read and comprehend, the book would be a great resource for library classes and those interested in library management and administration. --Booklist, January 1 and 15, 2008

"While Management Basics remains more useful for those in large libraries with complex management structures, I would nonetheless recommend it for many information professionals...With its excellent organization, detailed table of contents, comprehensive indexes, and 'key points to remember,' it can also serve as a reference resource on specific topics." --Portal: Libraries and the Academy

Is full of great tips and pertinent references on all sorts of skills and concepts...Easy to read and comprehend, the book would be a great resource for library classes and those interested in library management and administration. --Booklist, January 1 and 15, 2008

From Booklist:

This practical guide to management for any level of information professional is full of great tips and pertinent references on all sorts of skills and concepts. The text is split into four main parts, starting out with basic management concepts and issues such as diversity and staffing. Then it moves through knowledge and skill areas like marketing, decision making, planning, delegation, performance, communication, motivation, and leadership. The third part focuses on managing people, money, technology, and facilities; and the final part of the book deals with career development and ideas for the future. Easy to read and comprehend, the book would be a great resource for library classes and those interested in library management and administration. --Christy Donaldson
