English abstract

Human beings are responsible for causing risk as well as mitigating risk. This paper focuses on the human resources management risk remedies for digital libraries. Risk management aims at identifying, assessing and resolving risk items before they become disasters to an organization or digital library. Effective risk management plans should include short-term and long-term risks to project schedules, costs, and the functionality, adequacy and quality of project deliverables. Risks can become disasters if management does not foresee such risks and take appropriate action.
