Estimating manpower requirements - personnel planning, HR Management

Estimating Manpower Requirements:

With the fast changing dimensions of  library and  information services and with institutional  mechanisms  taking new forms, the problem of estimating  manpower requirements  is not only critical but also complex. The current and future personnel to deal with  the different  kinds of work and responsibilites is  a  blend of different educational and professional backgrounds and skills. Even in a small library  or information set-up, wherein a few persons work, the different categories of services demand correspondingly different skills and knowledge. Therefore a  proper estimation of manpower  requirements both in terms of quantity and quality is important. 

These estimates of the personnel of a library/information centre have to be based on the current activities, programmes and projects on the basis of targets to be achieved over a period time, say three to five years. The qualitative nature of persons required have to be simultaneously assessed, through techniques such as job analysis, job description and job evaluation.
