A Statistical Review of Turnover among Library School Faculty Members, 1960-1984.
Kilpela, Raymond
This study was undertaken to analyze turnover among faculty members who taught during the academic years 1960 to 1985 at U.S. library schools offering master's programs accredited by the American Library Association (ALA). Included in the study were 1,235 persons of whom 605 (49%) were women, and 630 (51%) were men. U.S. library schools holding accreditation during part of or throughout the entire period numbered 66. The study was undertaken to determine: (1) the average age at which faculty members first entered teaching; (2) for those faculty members who left teaching prior to the 1984-85 academic year, age at which they left teaching, number of years taught, number of teaching positions held, and types of positions or endeavors undertaken when leaving teaching; and (3) for those faculty members actively engaged in teaching during the 1984-85 academic year, age, number of years taught, and number of different teaching positions held. A narrative summary is followed by a series of nine tables that present statistical analyses of the survey findings. (THC)
