Advances in Library Administration and Organization vol 31 edited by Delmus E. Williams and Janine Golden, is now published. See the Table of Contents
The work of a librarian can be transformational. The role of the dynamic librarian involves thinking of change management as an integral part of the way that libraries are expanding to include unexpected challenges, services that might not be considered part of their portfolio and approaches to their work that are anything but traditional. The articles in this volume of Advances in Library Administration and Organization attest to that commitment to understand the process of change. The book will examine the challenges that working administrators face and discusses how to enable them to look more closely at their operations and to reconsider how to develop people and the organizations in which they work. As in previous volumes of Advances in Library Administration and Organization, the studies outlined in the chapters of Volume 31 will provide strategies that will be of value in addressing challenges faced by current and future library managers.

Advances in Library Administration and Organization was initiated to publish longer, research quality studies of interest both to working library managers and scholars.
We are particularly interested in how libraries have been and should be managed. The series publishes thought-provoking articles relating to both innovative and time-tested methods that can be used to organize our work.
The series offers an eclectic mix of timely, thought-provoking articles which brings together a collection of national and global studies conveying the kind of research that current library managers and researchers face, mixing theory with a good dose of pragmatism.
The series is widely read by practitioners, library and information science graduate students, and those working in associated fields of information management.
Research performed in all types of libraries; special, academic, school, and public. The subjects of the articles published vary widely, but the common theme is that the topics treated represent areas of common interest within our profession.
