Title:Time management for library professionals
Author(s):Peterson, Lisa C.
Subject(s):Librarians
Time management
Abstract:The purpose of this article is to review the literature on time management, discuss relevant issues, and present possible solutions. Time management is an important issue in libraries today especially when increased technological and informational demands are coupled with possible decreases in funding. A review of the literature demonstrates how librarians spend their time and what activities they consider time wasters. Consolidating information from the various studies helps to identify time issues that occur frequently in libraries. There are several different strategies available for dealing with these time management issues. Individual librarians must establish their own priorities and goals in order to choose the most appropriate time management strategies for their own unique situations. Additional studies are necessary, however, in order to objectively assess how all members of the library staff spend their time and to evaluate how different strategies affect the time use of individuals working in libraries.
