Subject(s):Library personnel management

Equal employment opportunity
Affirmative action
Abstract:The purpose of this paper is to share information I have gathered through experience and reading which I hope will illustrate why affirmative action can be sound management. This information should enable the reader to: 1. gain some understanding of the legal and social bases of equal employment opportunity and the need for taking affirmative action in the management of libraries; 2. know where to find basic information on equal employment opportunity and affirmative action; 3. apply equal opportunity principles in all areas of supervisory practice; and 4. provide leadership in developing support for, writing and implementing an affirmative action plan for the library in which you work.
