Second Annual Report of the Office of University Library Management Studies to the Association of Research Libraries.
Association of Research Libraries, Washington, DC. Office of Univ. Library Management Studies.
The Office of University Library Managmenet Studies has completed its second year of activity, pursuing its commitment to improving research library management. While the first year of operation focused on the Columbia Study, the second year emphasized the development of a new management tool--the Management Review and Analysis Program. This program provided participating libraries with guidelines for use in performing an internal study and evaluation of management policies, activities, and results. The office is currently interested in the top management problems rather than detailed operational specifics and intends to provide a wide-range of alternative management approaches rather than a single best way. In the future, the office will move toward the issues of collective management and the problems of management development. Another shift in emphasis will be to integrate the costs and activities of the office into the regular activities of the Association of Research Libraries. (An appendix lists various activities of the office in detail. (CH)
