SPEC Kit 302: Managing Public Computing (November 2007)

SPEC Kit 302 explores the management of library public computing, i.e., those computers that are located in public spaces for use by patrons, as distinct from staff computers and servers. By jointly looking at the scale of the public computing operations, the staffing and organizational structure, budgets, upgrades, maintenance, security, polices, and assessment, the survey pulls together and expands on issues covered in several previous SPEC Kits. It includes documentation from respondents in the form of job descriptions, public computing policies and procedures, and organization charts.
