about this item

Inherent Strategies in Library Management describes general and specific strategies for libraries based on core library values, and does so through concrete research. Many strategic management books for libraries introduce concepts of business management to the library world, but often neglect traditional library culture and core values.

This book reexamines management through the lens of libraries themselves, rather than relying on strategies borrowed from the business world, in an attempt to bring to light the factors and decision-making processes behind how librarians have run their libraries over the past fifty decades. In other words, their decisions can be regarded as inherent management, born naturally from the core foundations, considerations, and operations of libraries.

In addition, this book investigates the broad influences of business management theories on libraries, including a discussion on the advantages and disadvantages of their use.

  • Presents management strategies for libraries based on core library values
  • Provides detailed analysis on the effects of business management theories on libraries
  • Lays down the fundamental rules for managing libraries
  • Explains various management analysis methods
  • Bridges the gap between library core values and business efficiency
