CHARACTERISTICS OF PROFESSIONAL PERSONNEL IN COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES. FINAL REPORT.
SCHILLER, ANITA R.
THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS SURVEY WERE TO DESCRIBE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF LIBRARIANS EMPLOYED ON THE STAFFS OF THE MORE THAN 2,000 HIGHER EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS IN THE UNITED STATES IN 1966-57, AND TO IDENTIFY AND EXAMINE RELEVANT MANPOWER ISSUES. THE REPORT IS BASED ON THE RESPONSES OF 2,282 INDIVIDUALS, OR 93 PERCENT OF 2,459 SAMPLED FULL-TIME EMPLOYEES. GEOGRAPHIC ORIGIN, AGE, MARITAL AND FAMILY STATUS, PROFESSIONAL AND ACADEMIC DEGREES HELD, PRESENT POSITIONS, ACADEMIC STATUS AND RANK, AND SALARIES ARE REPORTED FOR ALL ACADEMIC LIBRARIANS, AND FOR MEN AND WOMEN. DATA FROM OTHER RELEVANT STUDIES ARE USED TO INDICATE TRENDS AND COMPARISONS. OPINIONS OF LIBRARY CAREER AND OF SALARY ARE REPORTED. MAJOR MANPOWER ISSUES ARE SEEN AS--THE IMPORTANCE OF CHALLENGING WORK AS A CHARACTERISTIC OF THE LIBRARY CAREER, RECOGNITION OF SPECIAL PROBLEMS IN LIBRARIANSHIP WHERE WOMEN ARE A NUMERICAL MAJORITY, NEED TO ELIMINATE DISCRIMINATION, IMPORTANCE OF FULL FACULTY STATUS FOR ACADEMIC LIBRARIANS, AND NEED FOR MORE EQUITABLE SALARIES. APPENDIX A (PAGES 93-104) CONTAINS A TECHNICAL NOTE ON SAMPLING PROCEDURES AND RESULTS BY JAMES W. GRIMM. (AUTHOR.RP)
