Faculty Status for Librarians in the State University of New York, A Short History.
Hubbard, Terry E.; Mielke, John
Since 1966 the librarians of the State University of New York (SUNY) have been working toward full faculty status for themselves on all 33 campuses. In that year the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Libraries recommended: library titles equivalent to existing academic titles; a range of librarians' salaries equivalent to those in academic ranks; equivalent working months, with additional compensation for service beyond the academic year; full faculty voting power; and an appointments program and tenure equivalent to that of the faculty. The legislature approved only the voting and appointments measures, leaving the librarians in a "limbo" with academic rank but with salaries and titles in the existing administrative hierarchical structure. A SUNY librarians association was formed in 1969 to help promote the original recommendations to both the university and unions representing faculty. So far, however, the unions have been unable or unwilling to negotiate for the improvements desired by the librarians. (LS)
