Intangible organizational resources : analysis of
resource based theory and the measurement of library
effectiveness / Maja Wojciechowska.-- London: Palgrave
xvi, 369 p. : ill. , 22 cm.
ISBN : 9781137581228.
025.1 WOJ 146409
This book addresses the challenges of organizing modern-
day institutions, focusing on the management of
intangible organizational resources of libraries through
both library science and management theory. Highlighting
new information requirements, knowledge transfer
technologies and changing patterns of social behaviour,
Intangible Organizational Resources explores how these
changes are affecting the organization of information
services such as libraries, and discusses what they mean
for the effectiveness and quality of their services.
Making a unique contribution in an otherwise under-
explored field, this is an essential text for those
involved in the organization of information services.

Financial Risk Management is a topic of primary
importance in financial markets and, more generally, in
life. Risk can be seen as an opportunity if related to
the concept of compensative return. It is therefore
important to learn how to measure and control risk, in
order to get exposure to as much risk as is necessary to
achieve some level of compensation, without further
useless exposure. This book analyses the various types of
financial risk a financial institution faces in everyday
operations. Each type of risk is dealt with using a
rigorous mix of analytical and theoretical approach,
describing all the major models available in the
literature, with an innovative look at the topic.
