One of the most critical problems for the librarian in a small library is not enough time. This book offers hundreds of practical ways to maximise limited time, based on actual experiences of the author and other practicing librarians. It explains how to use planning and prioritization to determine what to do and what not to do. It also provides techniques to make the most efficient and effective use of your limited schedule. All of these suggestions, which have been developed and proven by working librarians, are accompanied by specific examples from corporate, hospital, law, government, and association libraries. This book will help the librarian to: * determine the difference between efficiency and effectiveness * avoid procrastination * manage email * organize the workspace * deal with job stress * optimize the time spent at conferences. Also includes an extensive annotated list of resources, including books, articles, web sites, and electronic lists. A valuable resource for any librarian working in a school, small public or special library.
