In this issue, Robert P. Holley, Professor of Library and Information Science at Wayne State University, looks at several important points about library planning and budgeting from his twenty five years’ experience as a library administrator. He chose these topics because they most often come as a surprise to students in his library management classes as well as his library colleagues. Understanding these few underappreciated and less than obvious management principles can help library managers grasp how libraries are different from for-profit organizations and how they can avoid some planning and budgeting traps.
