Library Policies: Analysis, Formulation and Use in Academic Institutions. (Occasional Papers 2).
Webster, Duane E.
This paper examines the topic of policy analysis and draws upon the recently developed Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Management Review and Analysis Program which is a guide to conducting a self-study of an academic library's management and organization. The program was designed by the Management Studies Office and is presently being tested and refined prior to making it generally available. The purpose of the Management Review and Analysis Program is to analyze the success of the library's present approaches to several management topics, such as the formulation and use of library policies. This occasional paper goes beyond this assessment process and proposes a system for improving the use of management policies in large academic liabraries. Its intent is to propose an approach to the formulation and use of academic library policies, and to demonstrate their importance for academic library management. (Author/SJ)
