Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0786496061, Paperback)

Library work often involves coordinating projects with many tasks and many stakeholders where cost and time limitations can be seen as opportunities. Project management can serve librarians well in their approach to a project. Learning to effectively manage those projects will help to work more effectively and to achieve goals. This book is designed to provide all library staffers at every level, in public, academic, school, and special libraries with an understanding of the basic tools of the project management methodology so that they may embark on projects with the expectation of success. The book is divided into three sections. The first section, Preparing for Project Management, includes the terminology, the philosophy, the people, and the return on investment of project management in libraries. The second section, Planning and Implementing Project Management, introduces the basics of the project management methodology as designed by the Project Management Institute. The third section, Library Resources, provides assistance in using the project management methodology for specific types of library projects, an introduction to agile project management, and success stories in library project management. The book includes many examples of project management tools and techniques as applied to library projects.
