Women and Minorities in Academic Libraries.
Heim, Kathleen M.
The statistical data on women and minorities in higher education administration analyzed in this paper are found in a study done by the College and University Personnel Association (CUPA). Collected during the 1975-76 Administrative Compensation Survey, these data were broken out for white coeducational institutions, white women's institutions, white men's institutions, and minority institutions, and these institutions were further categorized as public or private. It was found that white men predominate as head librarians in all institutions except white women's private and minority public and private institutions. The head librarian position is the most frequently cited high position for women in higher education administration. The small number of women and minority men administrators at public white institutions earn higher median salaries than their white counterparts, but at the highest levels of academic librarianship true equalization between the races and sexes has not yet occurred. Data from the CUPA survey are summarized in four tables. (JL)
