Running a small library--be it a public, academic, school, or special library--usually means making do with little or no staff. Nevertheless, this challenging task requires skill and expertise. Budgets must be planned and justified. Policies and procedures need development and implementation. Facilities must be maintained. Collections require constant development. Then there are tasks programming; outreach; cataloging; circulation; computers and networks; automation systems; and other services. This unique how-to, written from the perspective of the small library and its particular challenges and strains, discusses these essential topics and also includes a resource section listing furniture, automation, and book and periodical vendors; listservs and discussion groups; professional organizations; and resources for more information. Any solo librarian or manager with a small staff will find Moorman's advice invaluable.
