Abstract

Aims to give an overview of some recent research into human resource (HR) deployment in library services in UK universities and colleges of higher education. The research findings indicate that staff deployment patterns in the context investigated are suboptimal and that, in consequence, individual libraries should be open to scrutiny in comparison with others not only in terms of their quantifiable patterns of library usage but also in terms of the patterns of their staff provision and staff deployment.
