FreeBook: Leveraging Budget in the Library

and Adapting to Challenging Economic Times

With a shift in the economic landscape, librarians have been forced to reevaluate traditional services and their relevance to their academic institutions. This FreeBook thus provides library practitioners and students of Library and Information Science (LIS) with advice on how to find new ways of offering services, in light of tighter constraints on budgets, via adapting entrepreneurial techniques to build capital, while raising the library’s profile to increase awareness of services.

Extra Guide Included: Effective Financial Planning for Library and Information Services.
