Manpower for Library Service.
Ginsburg, Eli; Brown, Carol A.
The present state of library manpower and the outlook for the future is assessed in terms of manpower analysis. The field of library service is appraised within the larger framework of such comparable fields as teaching, social work, and nursing which also make use of large numbers of female workers. Important findings and conclusions are: (1) the field of librarianship has responded to expanded demands by rapidly increasing the number of professional and para-professional workers, (2) the state of preparation for the field is confused, (3) many graduate programs, particularly doctoral, are weak, (4) it is undesirable to establish a single set of national standards for manpower qualifications, (5) there is a need for more librarians to become acquainted with the new technology for storage and retrieval, and (6) above all, the library field needs to know more about its own human resources--how they are recruited, trained, and utilized.
