This is a preprint of an article published by Taylor & Francis in Journal of LIbrary Administration on Feb. 1, 2018, available online: https://doi.org/10.1080/01930826.2017.1412714
“The Specialist” addresses the administration of special libraries, however identifying the administrator of a small special library is problematic. In these small libraries within organizations, the librarian often works alone and the library is overseen by a non-librarian manager. In these cases, it is not as easy to identify or define the library’s administrator as it would be in a public or academic library, or even a larger special library. This column introduces a model where the administration of small special libraries is a collaboration between librarians and non-librarian managers. In this model, information professionals exercise hidden leadership and management skills without leading a staff or possessing a management title. The column also suggests ways information professionals without explicit management responsibilities in the workplace can develop these skills and apply them in their jobs.
