People are what count." --from the author's Preface The various steps and procedures of personnel administration in libraries are treated on the basis of human relations. Organization for personnel administration as well as day-to-day supervision are covered. The analysis is then carried forward for the prospect of the electronic library. Contents: Emergence of the Librarian; Human Relations; Position Classification and Salaries; Recruitment; Selection; Evaluation; Legal Factors; Future of Personnel Administration.

Industry Reviews

I like the author's approach and attitude...a good book with a wealth of detail and information presented in a succinct and easily understood manner. Australian Library Journal Martin's broad overview of personnel administration is a useful and valuable text. Wilson Library Bulletin The value of this book extends well beyond those who work in the personnel function. Library Review
