In order for any library to achieve its mission and goals in the community, it must effectively manage staff, the collection, technology, and the facility itself. Managing for Results will help you identify key resources, make choices among different library priorities, and assign or reallocate resources to achieve results.

Numerous workforms are included that will aid you in collecting and analyzing the information needed to correctly allocate resources, such as:
-- Number of professional staff needed
-- How to budget for library materials
-- Amount of space needed for programs
-- Type and amount of software/hardware needed

Using the guidelines and workforms, you can focus on your library's needs and objectives, and determine how best to accomplish them.
