ORGANIZATION AND MANAGEMENT PRACTICES OF UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES IN BANGLADESH: AN EVALUATION
This article provides an overview of the university libraries and explains in detail their various organizations,
management, collections, functions, systems, and services as a whole. It also profiles careers in library work,
the education of librarians, and several professional organizations for librarians. Academic libraries function
almost as the hearts in the academic activities of the University. The libraries perform their functions properly,
a body of knowledge has been developed and incorporated within the scope of the training programs in library
management. That’s why a qualified librarian is needed to meet up such requirements. It is quite impossible
to control the entire library in pen and paper where there are a huge amount of books for the librarian. A
librarian (he/she) has to serve not only a single job, but also multiple jobs simultaneously. That’s why it
is difficult to keep track of those jobs. Library management is the theoretical concepts of managing such
a library efficiently. Finally, the article describes contemporary library management in various university
libraries in Bangladesh.
