Librarian's Manual

The Librarian's Manual is a text for beginning librarians, especially those with little or no training. The goal of this manual is to teach a high standard of library practice, yet be useable by people who know little about libraries, worked in less than ideal situations, and may or may not have a fluent knowledge of English. It has been used in training workshops in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe.
