Managing a Small Special Library in the 90's
MetadataShow full item record
In the 90s we have come to realize that current, accurate information is critical to institutional success, that technology will continue to reshape traditional information sources, and that financial resources will remain extremely tight. We can also be fairly certain that book and journal costs will continue to escalate, and that most institutions will be forced to undergo downsizing or at least impose hiring freezes. In order to cope with these factors, librarians will need an entrepreneurial spirit and good management skills. This paper offers seven pragmatic suggestions for the very vulnerable group of librarians that manage small special collections.
