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.

Available in English and Spanish, this resource can be ordered in hard copy ($40 plus shipping) or PDF electronic format ($40). If you desire to purchase more than 10 copies, please contact the Home Office at to learn about the discounted bulk rate.
