Subsequent chapters contain the Association of College and Research Libraries' (ACRL) 1971 "Standards for Faculty Status;" the 1972 "Joint Statement on Faculty Status" by ACRL, the American Association of University Professors, and the Association of American Colleges; and the ACRL's 1974 "Model Statement of Criteria and Procedures for Appointment, Promotion, and Tenure for College and University Librarians."
