Leadership Basics for Librarians and Information Professionals

A book just out in the market. A review of this may appear here, later. And, a review is scheduled to appear in Journal of Web Librarianship
Leadership Basics for Librarians and Information Professionals, by Evans G. Edward, and Patricia Layzell Ward. Scarecrow Press (2007) Description:
"With the start of the 21st Century, information services around the world are facing a host of challenges and changes unique to this era of exponential technological growth. However, this change is further compounded by the high turnover rate in senior positions. Focusing on leadership, this text--ideal for young, emerging managers and supervisors--is meant to guide future leaders in making the appropriate choices and decisions in response to and in anticipation of the competition."
