Evaluating personnel is a sensitive matter for all managers. To assist library managers in their staff appraisals, Jonathan A. Lindsey has identified and collected the best recent articles on the subject, drawing from both business and management journals as well as from library literature. Offering a broad and timely perspective, the articles can be applied to improve current performance evaluation methodology as it pertains to both professionals and paraprofessionals in all types of libraries. A helpful bibliography reflects the current spectrum in journal literature.
