The OPL sourcebook A Guide for Solo and Small Libraries

By Judith A. Siess

Judith A. Siess, author of The Solo Librarian's Sourcebook (1997) and editor of the monthly newsletter, The One-Person Library, has created the definitive handbook and directory for small and one-person libraries (OPLs). Taking an international approach to reflect the growing number of OPLs worldwide, this new book covers organizational culture, customer service, time management and planning, budgeting, accounting, technology, collection development, education, downsizing, outsourcing, and many other key management issues. Includes a wealth of useful tips, techniques, and case studies, knowledge management strategies for OPLs, and practical advice geared to help OPLs survive and thrive in an increasingly digitized (and downsized) future. The OPL Sourcebook a comprehensive directory to important organizations, publications, vendors and suppliers, discussion lists, and Web sites.

“This outstanding addition to the library science literature will be essential for new or experienced SOLO librarians and will be an excellent tool for library educators to use to present SOLO librarianship as a career option. This is a necessary purchase for library school libraries and libraries with small staffs. Librarians in large libraries will also profit from consulting it.” —American Reference Books Annual, Volume 31
