From Booklist:

Oriented to librarians who do not have a human resources department in the library, Managing Library Employees is for the nonexpert trying to come to terms with managing a library’s largest expenditure and asset—its employees. The chapters are divided into subtopics posed as questions. For instance, the chapter “Problem Employees and Marginal Employees” addresses such questions as “How do you handle the problem of absenteeism?” and “What do you do with the employee who shows up sick?” The chapters also provide information on writing an effective job description, designing a disciplinary procedure, and identifying potential issues that might lead to a lawsuit. Though there are numerous books on library personnel management, this useful guide for everyday situations should be on any library director or manager’s professional reference shelf. --Jerry Carbone
