Association of Research Libraries, Washington, DC. Office of Univ. Library Management Studies.; Maryland Univ., College Park. Univ. Libraries.
The University of Maryland at College Park (UMCP) libraries participated in a management review and analysis program (MRAP) with the assistance of the Office of University Library Management Studies of the Association of Research Libraries. Three study teams reported on the library system in its institutional setting; current trends in higher education and the UMCP response; and the library's mission, objectives, and goals with respect to those of UMCP. Task forces reported on the specific areas of planning, policy, budget, management information, organization, leadership and supervision, staff development, personnel, and general management. Recommendations were then formulated in seven major areas: (1) library goals and objectives as related to those of UMCP; (2) organizational roles and relationships; (3) leadership and supervision; (4) human resources management; (5) information dissemination within the library system; (6) communication between the library and the UCMP community; and (7) development and utilization of material resources. Finally, suggestions were made for reviewing the study and implementing the recommendations. Study team and task force reports are appended. (LS)
