Equal Pay for Equal Work; Women in Special Libraries.
Special Libraries Association, New York, NY.
The Special Libraries Association (SLA) provides information on achieving equal pay for equal work for women librarians in special libraries. A 1973 SLA study is cited to show pay differences between men and women. Then relevant legislation and executive orders are listed for the United States, along with similar legislation for Canada. Attention is also given to the problems of the librarian in a one-person library as well as to defining equal work and to determining if one is fairly paid. Eight steps are outlined for the individual who wishes to achieve salary parity, and five steps are suggested for ending salary inequities in the organization. Finally, legal alternatives in the U.S. and Canada are described. Sources of information and help are included along with a bibliography. (LS)
