Career Patterns of Women Librarians with Doctorates. Occasional Paper Number 147.
Dale, Doris C.
Approximately 50 percent of the 4-page questionnaires sent to a sample of 320 women librarians with doctorates were returned with usable responses for this 1977 survey requesting factual information on their education, experience, present position and salary, professional contributions, and personal characteristics. These women also responded to ten open-ended questions designed to elicit their opinions relating to: (1) choice of career, (2) opportunities for advancement to positions of leadership, (3) evidence of discrimination, and (4) guidance for women leaders in the future. Hard work, the proper educational credentials, mobility, assertiveness, and management skills were factors deemed essential for leadership roles in the decades ahead. (Author/RAA)
