Affirmative Action in ARL Libraries. SPEC Kit 230 and SPEC Flyer 230.
Diaz, Joseph R.; Tellman, Jennalyn
This SPEC Kit and Flyer focus on how libraries gather affirmative action statistics, what types of recruitment practices are used, especially those for protected classes, and what methods are used to retain minority librarians. Of 120 Association of Research Libraries (ARL) libraries polled in 1997, 43 responded to the survey. Survey results are discussed in the SPEC Flyer in terms of statistics, recruitment, and compliance. Retention strategies are also outlined and trends and emerging patterns are discussed. In addition to the representative documents, the survey form, a list of responding institutions and selected readings are included. (AEF)
