Although the positions of assistant or associate university librarians and deans are considered a training ground for upward movement in the profession, there are surprisingly very few mentoring experiences available. The Associate University Librarian Handbook: A Resource Guide looks to change that. Covering such topics as managing change, funding, research, career management, and more, this book will be a valuable tool and guide for both those in the position of associate university librarian and for those aspiring to get there.
