Survey Respondents Needed for Book on Library Management

Submitted by Blake on Tue, 02/24/2004 - 13:06

rachel writes "For a forthcoming book on library management, I'm asking librarians and library workers to take a few minutes to answer a few brief questions about their experiences being managed in the library environment. I'm looking for honest responses that show what library staff are looking for from their managers.

The survey is available at LISJobs.com. A plain-text version is also available for those who prefer not to use the online form.

Thanks for your time!"
