Problems in University Library Management.
Booz, Allen and Hamilton, Inc., Chicago, IL.
The primary purpose of this study is to identify the management problems of research libraries. The study suggests some approaches to solve these problems and sets priorities for action. The discussion is focused on the future and attention is directed to topics which promise to be significant in the context of the operating environment anticipated for research libraries and the universities of which they are a part. Areas in which impediments to effective university library management exist are: (1) planning, (2) objectives and requirements, (3) operations, (4) organization, (5) staffing, (6) facilities, (7) financing and (8) interinstitutional arrangements. Each of these areas is discussed in Chapter III, "Recommended Approaches to Improved Management of University Libraries." Chapter I discusses the implications of higher education trends for university libraries; Chapter II describes current and anticipated problems in the management of university libraries; and Chapter IV presents a plan of action. The chapter materials are summarized in the exhibits. (NH)
