Machiavellian Librarian

The Machiavellian Librarian –
Winning Allies, Combating Budget Cuts, and Influencing Stakeholders Book – 2013

This collection of essays is required reading if your career depends on the health of a university library. As the world converts everything away from paper towards electronic storage, and all materials go online, the challenges are great for the leaders in libraries. I suspect this change has the potential for great gains too. Librarians become more important as navigation becomes more difficult “can you drink from the fire hose?”. I do not work in a university, so I might have this all wrong. If you do work or study in a university, please comment.

The collection was compiled and edited in 2013, so it is somewhat dated, and it is not clear when the individual essays were written.
