More Description

Do librarians "rock the boat"? Do they challenge those around them to win influence and advantage? Why is it that librarians are little found on the "influence" grid of personality assessment tests? The Machiavellian Librarian offers real life examples of librarians who use their knowledge and skill to project influence and turn the tide in their (and their library's) favor. The authors offer first hand examples to help librarians learn to use their influence effectively for the betterment of both the library and their career. Opening chapters cover visualizing data and networking and strategic alignment, while following chapters discuss influence without authority - making fierce allies, communicating results in accessible language, and user centered planning. Closing chapters address using accreditation and regulation reporting to position the library better, as well as political positioning and outcome assessment.
