Balmer, Mary; And Others
The Wilbur Cross Library of the University of Connecticut has conducted a Management Review and Analysis Program (MRAP) study as outlined by the Association of Research Libraries. The MRAP report contains introductory chapters on the history and present circumstances of the University of Connecticut and its library. There follow reports and analyses of library planning, policies, budgeting, information management, organization, supervision, personnel development and administration, meetings and communications, as well as a report on branch, departmental, and professional school libraries. Some items which the report recommends are: written goals and objectives, with provision for evaluation of progress; a policy committee; creation of an Administrative Assistant for Personnel Services position; a staff development program; evaluation of staffing needs; a student employee handbook; updating of organization charts; definition of staff roles and responsibilities; and establishment of a formal communication system. Appendixes include employee and student enrollment information, organization charts, university finance information, and a statement of library objectives and goals. (LS)
