 HRM is developed largely in and for corporate settings; the principles and practices have      import for non-corporate organizations such public libraries, academic libraries within government agencies, and many special libraries. The application of ICT in universities have dramatically changed the environment and facing different challenges to promote library activities as well as provide services to its users. The challenges include skills shortages, talent management, shifting demographics, improving work / life balance, technological development, recruitment and retentive, changed employee expectations, motivational approach, and managing diversity.  However, the library is still expected to change along with the parent organization and respond effectively to whatever HRM policies are executed in order to develop library working environment. Through collaboration with other functions of the organization, library HR can increase its understanding of qualifications and skill sets to ensure that qualified employees are capable of executing their functions.
