A director’s manual is the most important resource and merits the time needed to assemble the document with great care. The purpose of the director’s manual is to ensure that all essential information concerning the day-to-day operation of the library can be located in one document. The goal is to compile in an orderly fashion all essential information such as library rules, policies and practices can be located and applied and in the case of an emergency the instructions on handling the matter are at the director’s fingertips. The program will cover the contents and structure of a well-crafted director’s manual.

Presented by Prof. Joshua E. Bienstock, JD., LLM., Associate Professor of Business Law, New York Institute of Technology, School of Management.
