Managing Change in Academic Libraries Book Review:

Managing Change in Academic Libraries helps academic librarians plan, implement, and manage changes to the fundamental structure of their organizations. It shows readers that in academic libraries the two driving forces behind most change are economics and technology. Declines in funding for education and in the purchasing power of libraries have made it impossible to maintain the status quo, let alone realize growth, in traditional information services and collection development. Add to this downward trend in library economics, the explosion of new information technology and its potential for radically altering communications and knowledge management, and one has the ingredients for some amazing changes in libraries. To help manage these many changes, chapters in Managing Change in Academic Libraries approach change with a mixture of radical and rational ideas. Readers learn academic librarians’views on dealing with change as they read about: an environmental scan which identifies both internal and external forces that are increasing the amount and scope of change in academic libraries technological change and its impact in academic libraries the academic library director’s role as an agent of change how two large library systems managed to change in some very fundamental ways when faced with serious economic and political challenges difficult personnel issues faced by academic libraries as they move into new organizational structures and adopt new management styles the future of traditional reference services in light of rapid developments in computing and networking how to change bibliographic control to better serve the changing expectations and needs of user communities conducting a restructuring study and recommendations for organizational change in a large research library system Each chapter shows academic librarians how they can respond imaginatively and nimbly to economic, political, and technological change that envelopes their professional work life. Academic librarians will refer to Managing Change in Academic Libraries again and again as a survival tool as they meet with challenging and unpredictable changes.

Managing Change for Library Support Staff Book Review:

In today's library environment the only constant seems to be change. This book describes how external and internal organizational changes have specifically affected library support staff who, being at the sharp end of the service, have to cope with the effects of change on a daily basis. Library managers need to inform themselves on how change affects the working experiences of staff, and how, in the face of uncertainty and upheaval, they can ensure those staff remain motivated and committed. Drawing upon case study and interview data, the author discusses: who library support staff are and why library managers should be particularly concerned about their welfare; the changing working environment of library support staff; work design; working conditions; the organizational climate; workforce planning and equal opportunities. The result is a rich picture of the current state of support staff roles in today's libraries.
