The Facet Library Management Collection

The Facet Library Management Collection provides cutting-edge information on and practical guidance on library management for the library leaders of today and tomorrow.

The ten books included in the Collection are:

Leading Libraries

"Thoughtful and thought provoking, the book’s extensive bibliography serves as witness to the thoroughness of the authors. For each topic, vanDuinkerken and Kaspar chose excellent sources, relying on experts within each domain."
- SLA Leadership and Management Division

Management Basics for Information Professionals, 3rd edition

"This large tome is a distillation of theories, research, and best practices gathered by the authors and some library leaders who helped annotate the twenty-one chapters, three of which are new since the 2007 second edition. Despite the title, the book is for anyone working - or studying to work - in libraries, from entry-level professionals through directors…a printed resource that will repay reading many times over."
- Catholic Library World

Being an Information Innovator

"Being an Information Innovator is aimed at information professionals who may not have had much formal contact with literature on innovation but are faced with the need for innovation in their organisations. As such it is a book that was long overdue and may yet become standard reading for all forward-looking information professionals."
- Program


"As a reference source for continuing professional development, this book is invaluable...This book should be highly recommended to graduates in non-professional posts, degree-level students, and library trainees desiring a springboard upon which to embark their leadership adventure."

Managing Information Services

"...Roberts and Rowley have succinctly gathered together all the basic elements that any aspiring or new manager, or indeed student, should know." 
- Education Libraries Journal

Supervising and Leading Teams in ILS

"...a superior resource…This is a considered and practical work. Its content is presented in effective and appealing ways."
- Australian Library Journal

Project Management

"...this book is very welcome as it provides a practical approach to project management as a part of change management. Some management textbooks on project management are often very theoretical and it is difficult for the information professional to draw practical lessons from them, but Barbara Allan has managed to overcome this by producing a thorough and practical management tool, written by an experienced and obviously successful professional. It is essential reading for anyone working in the profession who will be involved in change at some stage in their working life – and that is basically every library and information service manager."
- New Library World

Managing Stress and Conflict in Libraries

"Sheila Pantry has drawn up a useful guide to dealing with the stresses of working in a library. In a clearly laid out book, she outlines the causes of stress, the practical steps librarians can take to deal with it, and the legal responsibilities that managers have for the wellbeing of their staff...Managing Stress and Conflict in Libraries will prove a helpful resource both for those who work in libraries and their managers."
- Information World Review
