Introduction to Library Management

An Infopeople online course, beginning  10 March – 6 April 2015

Have you recently moved to a management position or are you considering a career path in library management? Do you want to determine your potential or improve your ability to be a successful manager? How strong are your management skills and what can you do to strengthen them or acquire additional skills?

During this course, which is targeted at first time managers and supervisors, you will learn:

  • The role and responsibilities of the library manager
  • Your personal strengths and areas for growth as a manager
  • The knowledge, skills and abilities managers need to be successful
  • Basic and successful techniques to manage people and resources
  • How to effectively make decisions
  • How to create a plan for your own managerial development

The course readings, discussions and assignments will give you opportunities to assess your own strengths and areas for growth and also to apply concepts to your own library situation. You will be able to participate in a live online meeting with Susan Hildreth, former director of the Institute of Museum and Library Services and former California State Librarian, who will provide advice for new managers and supervisors.

Fee: $75 for those in the California library community and Infopeople Partners, $150 for all others.
