Australian Library Supervision and Management is aimed at both students and practitioners at supervisory to middle management levels. It introduces management theory, but much of the theory is woven through the text, which emphasises practical issues and perspectives. Topics given special attention include skills required to implement and support participative management, team management, leadership, self management, change management, strategic planning, job design, performance measurement, negotiation and conflict resolution.The first edition of this book, published in 1995, was the first comprehensive text on the management of libraries written for the Australasian librarian and student. Reviews of the first edition considered it a "a valuable contribution to the literature" (Australian Library Journal). Such has been the demand for this book, especially from students of library and information management, that it has been reprinted several times (including an abridged version in 2000). This long-awaited second edition takes into account the changes in management theory and practice, and the issues confronting the library manager in the twenty-first century.
