MLS programs do a good job of teaching the basic skills of being a librarian - how to catalog books, how to clarify a reference request, how to run a story hour. But as any working librarian will tell you, that's not the half of it. A long-time library administrator, Elisabeth Doucett gives new librarians a full dose of practical advice and wisdom that remains between the lines of most library curriculum, while also teaching seasoned professionals a thing or two. Gleaned from years of hard-fought experience, this book: a) covers a variety of library topics that are truly relevant to the day-to-day job, such as management, administration, and marketing; b) shows how librarians can use practical business and organizational skills to do a better job and further their careers; and c) presents information in a grab-and-go format perfect that's ready to apply in the real world. For MLS graduates just entering the job market, as well as individuals interested in switching gears through promotion or advancement, Doucett offers the inside scoop on what a librarian really needs to know.
