About this title


An important component of library administration and organization in the modern age is managing projects. Once the realm of technology and business gurus, formal project management tools, techniques and schemas have become more commonplace in libraries. Using formal project management components can help libraries achieve their desired outcomes with less stress for employees. However, there can be an entry barrier to project management, since the concepts are still somewhat out of the range of the usual library administration experience. This volume of Advances in Library Administration and Organization attempts to put project management into the toolboxes of library administrators through overviews of concepts, analyses of experiences, and forecasts for the use of project management within the profession.


Contributed by librarians from universities in North America, the 17 essays in this volume detail concepts, experiences, and forecasts for the use of project management in library administration. They describe various elements of project management, including pre-project planning, workplace culture, common roots between librarianship and project management, and the disadvantages of project management in a library setting; how project management principles can be used to build community engagement and relationships through the lens of faculty partnerships; how project management frameworks can be used by those without formal authority; the development of project management processes in a library; the use of project management techniques in digital projects; how project management tools can be combined with change management techniques; how product management techniques can change collection service models in university archives and special collections; the value of full-time project management positions; how protocols like Six Sigma, Lean, and Scrum have been applied in libraries; using a project management mindset as an administrative approach to creating workplace efficiencies and building employee leadership skills; project management in a new library storage facility; and what project management training can offer for library professionals, including how techniques can be implemented within a library and the benefits and limitations for training library professionals in the Scrum project management framework.
