The adoption of Information and Communication Technologies has changed the professional management of information immeasurably. So the professional roles and models of the past are no longer appropriate, and models derived from other industries or spheres of management do not embrace the opportunities and concerns of the library profession. What is needed is a redefinition of what the professional role encompasses, how that role engages with social needs and aspirations and what this means for the practical management of the staff that provide information services. This essential management text considers for the first time: the changes to organizational management and behaviour that are engendered by the electronic culture of information work; what this means for the role of leadership; and how leaders can best promote a culture of growth, experimentation and critical enquiry in the workplace. This book is essential reading for all library management professionals, whether leading a team, running a one-person service or looking to move into management. It will also be essential student reading on the management module of LIS courses.
