The Library Management for Beginners series is a collection of courses designed for the new manager or those managers wanting a basic topic refresher. The series is designed to serve as a primer to introduce key management and leadership topics to help managers succeed in their new roles.

Managers and leaders frequently find themselves maneuvering through a variety of situations such as obtaining buy-in, defending library resources and services, and resolving conflicts. An effective negotiating strategy can be key to successfully reaching an agreement where both sides feel like they have benefited.
