Managing a school library media center is complex and challenging. From policies to puppet shows, the librarian is responsible for it all. Everything that contributes to (and can detract from) the smoothly-running library media center is covered in this guide. The logical organization begins by examining the purpose of the library media program within the school. The authors then build toward the complete library media center with topics like materials selection and circulation (examining both manual and automated systems), acquisitions, processing, staffing and instruction - even a checklist for supplies. Not neglected are public relations, the library facility itself, and recommended ways of becoming involved in curriculum planning. Also included is a practical, workable approach to budget proposals, allocations, and controls.

Review:

"Another in the How-To-Do-It series and equally as good as the others. I want to subtitle them 'Library Science for Dummies' or 'Library 101' as everything needed in the formation of the beginning librarian is present....These titles are very needed. Combine all of this with the situation that most beginners are solitary professionals with no mentor program in place, these manuals are essential."
