Description
How should librarians handle collection challenges? Distruptive patrons? Unattended children? Having policies in place is critical, but developing sound and workable policies is often frustrating and time-consuming, particularly without guidelines and models to follow. This practical, time-saving guide is designed to keep librarians from reinventing the wheel, using a systematic approach to policy development and revision. The manual provides model policies which can be customized to suit any library. The authors also provide suggested schedules for writing, adopting and revising policies; a clear explanation of the background and issues; and advice on involving other staff, board members and volunteers. A wide range of policy areas are covered, including patron conduct, staff conduct, access and use of facilities, personnel and employment practices, intellectual freedom, access to library services, use of materials and collection development. Although primarily written for small- and medium-sized public libraries, these policies are also a useful resource for special, one-person libraries and library boards.
