Daily Thoughts 12/4/2012
This morning, I read some of Management Basics for Information Professionals 2nd Edition by G. Edward Evans and Patricia Layzell Ward. The opening chapters are on the different types of management styles. I am not particular fond of time motion studies and efficiency. I rather like the idea of quality management and participative management styles which take account of all the staff.
I also spent some time looking at cancelations from BWI so I can determine what I plan on reordering. Many of the items are out of print or out of stock from the publishers.
I have to read The Times Literary Supplement from November 30, 2012 and the December 3, 2012 Publishers Weekly.
On the way home, I read some more of Management Basics for Information Professionals. The two sections which I read were on diversity and marketing. The marketing section had a little bit on public relations. I liked that library advocacy was described as part of public relations.
