When You Are in Charge: Reflections on Managing Staff in the Library
Riley-Reid, Trevar
Journal of Access Services, v15 n1 p14-23 2018
At some point in our library career, we may find ourselves in charge of an intern, volunteer, part-timer or even full-time staff, whether of our own initiative or not. There might be an organizational shift: someone retires or divisions merge and you might find yourself in charge of one person, or many. Sometimes even a simple situation, such as having an intern or a work-study student can still result in having to be responsible for the work outcomes and evaluations of another. The purpose of this article is to analyze some key approaches to being an effective manager from a practical context with some analysis informed by the relevant literature.
