Findings – Library managers moving from one country and culture and one organization to another require considerable energy, knowledge and skill in making the change. Originality/value – The pitfalls and the pleasures are outlined – and neither should be underestimated. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Management Emerald Publishing
