Recruiting Library Staff
A How-to-do-it Manual for LibrariansBook - 1999
From high level managers to custodial staff, libraries large and small can face daunting challenges when recruiting applicants. Are some ways better than others to attract a desirable candidate pool? How can a manager target potential employees with the necessary characteristics and skills? Which recruitment activities are the best fit for the library's needs and resources? Are there hidden costs and potential pitfalls or benefits from job fairs, commercial career events, and other activities? What perception do applicants have of the library and can/should they be changed? These questions and more are answered by this very practical "how-to". Included are ready to use position description work sheets, job descriptions, announcements, audit forms, and much more. "Do" and "don't" review checklists are included for each chapter.
