    One thought on “Fundamentals of Technical Services Management”

    1. I haven't taken 635 yet, but I imagine that if I already had, a lot of the chapters would be redundant: the discussion of library management techniques, etc. seems very general and perhaps a little obvious. Still, not a bad read.

    2. One thing about these library management books: Ay! the conflicting lists of "practical wisdom" (i.e. conflict is unavoidable, avoid friction). Anyhow, this book may actually be under-rated.

    3. Very basic review of library technical services. Good as an introduction to managing a technical services unit but does not get into detailed analyses of how to actually do the managing.
