Academic Law Librarians and the Quest for Faculty Status: A Survey for the 1990's.
Stouffer, Christine M.
The objective of this research was to collect statistical data on the present faculty status of academic law librarians. A survey of a random sampling of member schools of the Association of American Law Schools was conducted on the issue of faculty status for academic law librarians in response to the ever-growing need and demand for recognition and equality. The results of the study imply that some action on the part of university/law school administrators and/or boards of trustees is necessary to close the gap between the wishes (and possibly the demands) of academic law librarians and actual personnel policies as they presently exist. The results also indicate that communication between academic law librarians and their administrators must be forthcoming if any real changes can be made. Finally, the results of the questionnaire impose an obligation on the directors of academic law libraries to join together and focus on this issue. The chi-square analysis and survey instrument are appended. (Contains 31 references.) (TMK)
