Trends in Faculty Status for Librarians, with Special Emphasis on Academic Libraries in California.
Fikes, Robert, Jr.; And Others
This paper briefly discusses trends since the mid-1960's and the situation as of 1981 with regard to faculty status for academic librarians, particularly in California. Issues mentioned include working the academic as opposed to the calendar year, promotion, job qualifications, tenure, sabbatical leaves, research requirements, writing for publication, and continuing education. Following a review of the literature concerned with faculty status in academic libraries, a description is provided of progress made in this direction at San Diego State University since 1966. Subsequent sections review faculty status in academic libraries in the California State University (CSU) and Colleges system, in California's junior colleges and private colleges and universities (particularly the University of the Pacific in Stockton), and in the University of California (UC) system. It is concluded that progress toward faculty status is continuing and that this progress is not likely to dissipate in the foreseeable future, especially in California. (ESR)
