Faculty Status and Theological Librarians.
Pakala, James C.
Findings of this study confirm that head librarians at theological libraries dominate the profession in terms of qualifications for and characteristics of faculty status, and that the possession of appropriate individual qualifications tends to be accompanied by faculty status. The status of the individual was the unit of analysis for completed questionnaires representing 65 percent of the members of the American Theological Library Association. For each librarian, faculty rank, such qualifications as professional degrees, and such characteristics as tenure were determined and analyzed. Among head librarians, half had published, as opposed to 14 percent for all others, and 77 percent held faculty rank. No librarians with all 14 of the qualifications for faculty status used as variables for the study had less than seven of the eight characteristics used to operationalize the concept of having faculty status.
