About this item
The management of a library means, in simple terms, efficient and effective management of information resources, machinery, men and money to meet the objectives of the library. It is important to note that libraries are basically paternalistic, service oriented and not-for-profit organizations. As a matter of fact, it is that part of management which is called service management. Libraries have grown with times in the social, cultural, scientific and technological environments in which they have been developing and operating. Modern libraries are not merely storehouses of knowledge and information, but are also live and active institutions involved in a vital service to society. This book presents an in depth look on vital issues pertaining to library management and is expected to be of immense value to the library professionals, students of various library and information science programmes and teachers.
