Why do I talk frankly about management?

Because we need good managers in libraries. Lots of ’em.  Now.  To back up that assertion, I offer:

That’s is what the ALA JobLIST looked like on Friday, January 7, 2011, about 5:15 EST.  Of the 15 jobs on page 1, 5 are for Directors.  One’s an Assistant Director.  One’s a Dean.  Three are Coordinators, Heads, or “Senior” positions.  Only 5 are for non-management positions.

Draw your own conclusions.  Mine is “We need good managers in libraries.  Lots of ’em.  Now.”
