neues Image der Bibliotheken/Diversity Management: A New Management
Culture of Diversity—For a New Image of Libraries by Wolfgang
Kaiser (Berlin: Simon Verlag für Bibliothekswissen, 2008—e22.00, ISBN
978-3-940862-02-0), 134 pp.) describes how, in the context of libraries, diversity
management employs the heterogeneity of employees, with their different
life plans, experiences, and discernible differences, as an enrichment
of the not-for-profit organization. Ultimately, this mirrors a differentiated
customer orientation. After a theoretical introduction, definitions of the
method are related to the social changes of the library sphere. The library
as a communication place and public space requires a changed management
which takes into account the cultural variety within the population
and with it the user. Best practice examples from the United States, Great
Britain, and Denmark underscore the impact and show ways for the application
of this method. Implications for new challenges for education,
training, and future personnel planning in libraries are noted. Diversity
management can improve the image, the social position, and the political
weight of libraries and promote them.
