This guide shows how library board leaders can deal with issues in public library management, including risk management, local values and the First Amendment, leadership and management, funding, and relationships with community leaders. It aims to aid trustees and their directors in understanding the impact of issues, assessing the trustee's role in addressing them, and reviewing practices from other libraries. Miller is affiliated with a company that specializes in positioning strategies for organizations, and Fisher is an independent consultant in marketing, public relations, and library board development. Both have served libraries in a variety of roles.
