Women in a Woman's Profession: Strategies.
Sellen, Betty-Carol, Ed.; Marshall, Joan K., Ed.
In July of 1974, a conference of women librarians met at Rutgers University to discuss the present status of women in the profession and prospects for the future. The program focused on the history of discrimination against women, the librarian's self-image, and library career development. Emphasizing changes to be made, the group examined some possible tactics: regional organization, union organization, affirmative action, and changes in library education. Included in the conference summary are the texts of the speeches, resolutions sent to the American Library Association, and a bibliography relating to women in librarianship. (EMH)
