Description: From Library Journal
Library science students and public library administrators alike will profit from this comprehensive introduction by Gertzog and Beckerman, experienced public library administrators, educators, and consultants. Using as their model Guy R. Lyle's Administration of the College Library, 4th ed. (Professional Reading, LJ 6/1/75; Gertzog coauthored Lyle's Administration of the College Library. 5th ed., Professional Reading, LJ 2/1/93), the authors give attention to the history of U.S. public libraries, as well as the theories and issues of contemporary public librarianship. They also include specific practical applications and sound advice for public and technical services, marketing, human resource management, financial management, collection development, and library evaluation. Appropriate titles are suggested at the end of each chapter for the reader who wants more depth. Expect future editions of this eminently readable, yet well-documented text.

Product Description:
The Administrative of the Public Library is a comprehensive approach to contemporary public library concerns. It combines theory and practical advice as it addresses in a simple, logical, clear, and jargon-free fashion public library policies, procedures, resources, and human relations. Based on the premise that library administration entails not only familiarity with management principles, but intimate knowledge of the products and processes for which it is responsible, the book covers "input functions"-collection development, technology, technical services; "public services"-outreach information, circulation, youth, readers; as well as important traditional "management topics"-staff, directors, finance, buildings, and public relations. All of these are developed within a system, political, historical, and social context. The text uses as its model Guy R. Lyle's "Administration of the College Library" and is designed for students and practicing librarians alike.
