Guide #3, Management Essentials in the Public Law Library
This guide discusses key management principles for the public law library. Although all law libraries are different, many principles-such as budget, resource management, and community relations-must be addressed by all public law libraries. This guide explores five core principles of management via insightful articles from the State, Court, and County Law Libraries Special Interest Section membership: budget/financial planning and negotiation; working with the board; community relations; service development and collection rebalancing; and managing resources.
