Print: 978-0-8389-1154-4 . 2012 . softcover . 96 pp . 8.5x11 . $45.00 members: $40 .50

this timely ala editions Special report provides a succinct but comprehensive overview of the “privatization” of public libraries. it provides a history of the trend of local and state governments privatizing public services and assets, and then examines the history of public library privatization right up to the California legislation introduced earlier this year to restrict cities in the state from privatizing library services. the Special report also examines what happens when a private, for-profit organization takes over essential management tasks and decisions of a public library, including the effects this can have on services, patron satisfaction, and staff, as well as legal issues. it provides indepth recommendations for librarians who want to retain control of their own institutions. Complete with case studies, statistics, and a valuable checklist of to-dos for libraries that are facing partial or complete privatization.

as computers become ever more central to the library experience, the number of digital projects that librarians are tasked with managing grows ever larger—mounting digital collections, overhauling the catalog, and delivering web-served reference are just the tip of the iceberg. but an in-thetrenches approach to digital project management is usually both haphazard and inefficient. in this book, revels gets down to the practicalities of managing multiple digital projects by

Presenting an overview of the subject, honing in on the “triple constraints” faced by all projects: time, cost, and scope explaining the stages, activities, and outputs that should be considered in planning and executing a digital project Showing readers how to evaluate software packages to identify the best tools to carry out their projects including sample worksheets, job descriptions, and a complete bibliography for further research

time-strapped librarians need a book that brings them up to speed on this responsibility now fundamental to every library, and this thorough, one-stop resource offers detailed coverage of the process from beginning to end.

as baby boomers continue to swell their ranks, behavior and trends in older adults have changed dramatically in the last ten years—and most literature on this topic is hopelessly out of date. Schull, co-editor of Boomers and Beyond, helps improve the situation by

Presenting over a dozen case studies of public library programs for older adults, spotlighting best practices that can be applied at other institutions detailing a four-year program, presented by the lifelong access libraries national leadership institute, that trains librarians to meet the needs of people over the age of 50 discussing issues such as creativity, health, financial planning, heritage and planning, and intergenerational activities from the over-50 perspective, laying out the trends and implications for libraries including samples of materials that illustrate new approaches to policies, staffing, programs, services, partnerships, and publicity

Containing the keys to reshaping library services for older adults, Schull’s book needs to be in the collection of every public library.
