Curriculum & Instruction/Literacy Studies
Library administrators could adjudge their likely fortunes in the academic tug-of-war for funds if they understood more clearly the attitudes of institutional administrators toward libraries. Some view the library as "a bottomless pit"; all recognize that the library is unlikely to generate much political pressure for its own aggrandizement. Many young institutional administrators are coming to apply more sophisticated measures to their funding formulas than than have been utilized in the past. Librarians therefore would be well advised to become more proficient inn modern management techniques and programs budgeting concepts.
