This is a practical handbook guiding new supervisors in traditional areas such as interviewing and hiring, training staff, budgeting, and managing personnel and meetings. It also covers less tangible, but still important concerns such as encouraging a positive work climate and a summary of general communication skills. Reflecting today's concerns, it also includes chapters specifically focused on inclusiveness and diversity and potential legal issues. Written by two experienced library managers currently holding academic positions (at the U. of Nebraska-Lincoln and Purdue U.), it makes for a quick read that can also be consulted when it's time to resolve specific issues.
