County Library Staff Guilds A Commentary

County Library Staff Guilds A Commentary A wellknown librarian said recently that a good staff was a happy staff. Presumably in such a case the administration and staff organisation would be running smoothly, and everybody concerned would naturally find happiness in that. But there is more to it than organisation and administration. If the personal element is considered, as it should be, the relationship on a social level would also naturally make for pleasant conditions. How can the general ideal be reached It seems obvious that there is a social side to it, but there's no doubt that one senior of illconditioned temperament can spoil things for everybody. It is suggested that every effort should be made by librarians to cement happy relationships in every way possible. Successful library service does not depend merely on the circulation there is also the aspect of happy fellowship in the service. These notes are intended to be suggestive to that end. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

A wellknown librarian said recently that a good staff was a happy staff. Presumably in such a case the administration and staff organisation would be running smoothly, and everybody concerned would naturally find happiness in that. But there is more to it than organisation and administration. If the personal element is considered, as it should be, the relationship on a social level would also naturally make for pleasant conditions. How can the general ideal be reached It seems obvious that there is a social side to it, but there's no doubt that one senior of illconditioned temperament can spoil things for everybody. It is suggested that every effort should be made by librarians to cement happy relationships in every way possible. Successful library service does not depend merely on the circulation there is also the aspect of happy fellowship in the service. These notes are intended to be suggestive to that end.
