Organisational culture in the library and information services – framework and experiences


Könyvtári Figyelő (Library Review) vol. 15. (51.) 2005. no. 3. pp. 559 – 575.

Not much research has been done in the field of organisational culture yet, although as the results show, appropriate analysis would help find answers to important questions e.g. how to increase efficiency in the library. The study deals with the levels and system of organisational culture elaborated by Quinn and Schein and presents the competing values framework. The author applies the different types of organisational culture to types of libraries. The cultural groupings of Hofstede are illustrated with examples.
