Personnel Utilization in Libraries, Selected Papers.
Rockwood, Ruth H., Ed.
An institute on the utilization of personnel in libraries was conducted by the Florida State University School of Library Science in October, 1969. Papers presented are grouped into the following three broad categories: (1) changing attitudes toward personnel administration, (2) procedures for selecting middle management and (3) ways and means of developing effective leadership. The premise is that shortages in library personnel at all levels, but especially in the middle management positions, and inefficient use of personnel have kept libraries from providing the best possible services to individuals and communities. This publication is directed to professional librarians with management experience and administrative responsibilities for developing personnel to show them how to better use their staffs to improve the library. The papers presented include: (1) Leadership, (2) Democratic Administration and Morale, (3) Communications, (4) Policy of Selection, (5) Selection Devices, (6) Civil Service, (7) Opportunities for Growth, (8) Decision Making and the Delegation of Authority, (9) The Management Team, (10) Inservice Training: A Panel Discussion and (11) A Model Plan for Utilization of Personnel.
