Applegate (library and information science, Indiana U.) examines management and political considerations of small college libraries. Expected categories--organizational structure, recruitment of personnel, planning, budgeting, and bibliographic instruction are all treated, but the largest chapter is devoted to the question of whether librarians should be granted faculty status. The management of collection development activities is covered briefly with sections on budgeting and planning. A selected bibliography is included.

It's an often overlooked fact: Small four-year and community colleges are very differnt from larger institutions. The patrons' objectives and priorities are different and the monetary resources and staffing available are certainly more restricted than at bigger academic libraries. Librarians at smaller college libraries have specific needs and face unique challenges.

Managing the Small College Library covers the key responsibilities of the small college library director: personnel, planning, budgeting, and serving key constituencies. The author draws upon her in-depth knowledge of bureaucratic, political, and human resources managerial theory to explain how librarians can advance the mission of their library. It also includes an in-depth discussion of tenure and academic status for librarians, and examines the effects of both public and religious affiliation.
