The structure and range of topics included in this book will provide an excellent introduction to supervision and management. In addition, there are clear definitions given with every chapter, and great discussion questions and activities. — Susan Pinkerton, Ph.D, Professor, New Mexico State University – Doña Ana Community College
Supervision and Management: An Introduction for Support Staff is both a practical guide as well as an effective learning tool for anyone in a library support staff role who finds themselves in a supervisory position. It is a comprehensive text without a lot of fluff or impractical theory. The book would be a great addition to any support staff educational program, or any library that finds itself with an inexperienced manager.— Amy Whitmer, Lead Instructor, Library and Information Technology, Central Carolina Community College
