Librarians and Academic Status: A Position Paper.
Bloch, Eileen, Comp.; And Others
This paper discusses the rationale for faculty rank, status, and tenure for librarians at the College of Charleston. A brief historical overview of the profession of librarianship traces the evolution of the function of the today's librarian as a participant in the processes of teaching and research. Standards for academic status are given, as well as criteria for evaluation. Suggested criteria include: (1) professional competence and activity; (2) activities related to inquiry and research; (3) teaching or instructional effectiveness; (4) service to the institution; and (5) public service. It is suggested that only by acceptance of the standards presented can librarians be evaluated by their peers. (AP)
