Suzan Carol Curzon

Rowman & Littlefield Publishers


In this unconventional management text, author Dr. Susan Carol Curzon presents a different take on traditional library management tools. Through personal narrative and anecdotes from other working professionals, Curzon presents the many everyday challenges one meets as a library manager:

• The unwritten rules, strategies, and bits of wisdom only learned on-the-job
• Behavioral nuances
• Political strategies
• Mentor-like advice
• Subtle communication codes

Regardless of the professional setting, management is management and wisdom is wisdom. What Every Library Director Should Know is the insider’s view of vital actions, behaviors, and strategies needed to succeed in every type of library.
