Report on the "Proposed Library Reorganization".
Lowry, Charles; And Others
A proposed reorganization plan for the J. Murrey Atkins Library of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte would organize the library in the collegial mold with two departments, Public Services and Technical Services. Within each department, librarians would form a faculty with emphasis on participatory management. Decisions involving the activities of particular library units would be made with the participation of the support staff working in that area. To implement this scheme, a three- to twelve-month period of analysis and experimentation would be conducted with staff members other than department heads acting as coordinators for reorganization. Through training sessions, staff members would develop needed skills in management techniques, communication, and decision-making. Detailed recommendations for implementing the scheme are included.
