Personnel Classification Systems in ARL Libraries. Kit 85.
Wells, H. Lea
This publication is based on current personnel classification schemes collected from 74 library members of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) in the spring of 1982. It is noted that there are many similarities among the schemes, with increased recognition of specialists, attempts to define positions in greater detail, and a growing interest in modifying schemes to make them more useful managerial tools for selecting and reviewing individuals and devloping performance. Concise summaries of classification systems for professional librarians, support staff, and student assistants in ARL libraries are provided. The main body of the kit consists of classification documents in use at 11 ARL member libraries. The documents are divided into three sections covering: (1) classification of librarians at Princeton University, Columbia University, and York University; (2) classification of support staff at University of Pittsburgh, University of Manitoba, University of California-Irvine, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, University of Kentucky, University of Colorado, Northwestern University, and the New York Public Library; and (3) classification of student assistants at University of California-Irvine. Position classification forms, check sheets, and charts in use by libraries are included. An evaluation sheet for this ARL Systems and Procedures Exchange Center (SPEC) kit is provided. (ESR)
