Give ‘Em What They Want!: Managing the Public’s Library
American Library Association
Submitter: This was not a bad choice for 1992. But holding on to it today is just sad. This was still being used at my local library. I think it’s time to update to this century.
Holly: This was great in the early 1990s! I even like the “give ’em what they want” philosophy for library management books for today. It is just too dated to be useful, though. The screen shots below (especially the Baker & Taylor ordering system) are just comical. Of course technology is still part of long-range planning, as indicated in the third image below (the one with the microfilm machine), but the way that is worded is soooo 1992. Or earlier.
