Library Leadership in the United States and Europe
A Comparative Study of Academic and Public Libraries699
This book is the first to examine library and information science leadership in the United States and throughout Europe, providing a critical analysis and comparison of leadership in America versus in Europe and the United Kingdom. Library Leadership in the United States and Europe: A Comparative Study of Academic and Public Libraries discusses prevalent leadership theories, practices, and literature, exploring issues with broad implications thematically and across different countries. After an introduction that overviews leadership, leadership theories, and influences of national culture and related concepts, the authors examine leadership in the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe as a whole, and selected European countries, highlighting differences and shared characteristics. The latter half of the work focuses on selected themes such as management and accountability and discusses an international research agenda. This unique book will appeal to a broad range of readers: school library educators and teachers of relevant classes dealing with change management, organizational development, international librarianship, and leadership; researchers in the areas of leadership and international librarianship; as well as LIS students in general.

"Interesting and informative. While it's a relatively short book at 219 pages, it packs in a wealth of information. . . . What is especially good about this book is that everyone can benefit from it, not just managers. Anyone who leads a committee, team, project or other activity within the library can learn from this book. Leadership and management are not the same thing, and this book makes it clear. . . . Highly recommended for everyone." - The Journal of Academic Librarianship
