Placement Services in Accredited Library Schools.
Wheeler, Helen Rippier
A questionnaire was mailed to the chief administrative officer of each of the fifty-one accredited library schools in the United States at the beginning of January 1973 by the Committee on Accreditation of the American Library Association. The purpose of the questionnaire was to determine the type of placement services offered by the library schools because library schools seem to provide the main access to employment for many professional librarians and for most new graduates beginning their careers. Specifically, the questionnaire sought to determine the status of women in librarianship and what role the placement services have played regarding female librarians. The tabulated results of the questionnaire, which show that library school placement is not generally socially responsible (i.e., is sexist), are included along with a copy of the questionnaire.
