Emerging Personnel Requirements in Academic Libraries as Reflected in Recent Position Announcements.
Block, David
This study of the personnel requirements and hiring patterns of academic libraries draws on data collected from academic library position announcements issued nationwide during the fourth quarter of 1980. Data on 224 announcements were analyzed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, and the resulting statistics are interpreted as a means of describing facets of the contemporary job market--its positions and salaries, geographical distribution, and required skills for technical services, public services, administrative, and other positions. Traditional positions, principally in cataloging and reference, account for the majority of the listings, and requested skills in the physical sciences, business, mathematics, and computer applications were found to be conspicuous by their absence. Six tables display the data discussed in the report, and eight references are listed. (RAA)
