Is your library emotionally healthy?

Read this excellent article...and look deep within yourself and your library's culture...

This isn't really a tech article but many of the points could be applied to how your library handles technology -- or doesn't handle it!

Excerpt: These are some great questions to ask in an interview:

Describe the morale in the library.  How does the staff socialize together?

What are some of the frustrations of the professional and paraprofessional staff?      

How is information communicated in the library?

How are executive decisions made and communicated?

How do departments communicate in the library?  Are there mechanisms set up for communication across divisions and departments?
