This session on Managing Personnel is designed to help the first-time library manager gain a foundation to successful personnel
management. Library personnel are one of the most valuable assets for information organizations. Library staff are key to the success of
libraries through their job performance and presentation of their employers to their constituents. Managers are instrumental drivers in
fostering, mentoring, and developing productive and fulfilled library staff.
