New Management Strategies and Organizational Culture in Libraries

Implementation of modern managerial processes is an essential aspect in contemporary libraries which will enable and facilitate their success in the information world. Recent understanding of the importance which knowledge resources have regarding the performance of organizations has lead libraries to consider structural changes and massive investment for implementing knowledge management. In this context, the paper approaches the organizational culture in libraries by way of an example from Romania and emphasizes the necessity to create in libraries a culture that promotes learning and knowledge sharing which can help them become learning organizations.
