Collaboration between Theory and Evidence-Based Practice--Two Cultures: Librarians and Professors.
Segal, Judith A.
This paper addresses the struggle of librarians for academic recognition. It is based on a case study of a grassroots library association, the Library Association of the City Colleges of New York (LACCNY), striving for academic rank, as well as a review of the theories of associations. The history of LACCNY from 1939 to 1965 is summarized, noting that during this time that association vigilantly, consistently, and ineffectively sought teaching faculty salary and rank parity for its academic librarian members. Research and theories about the role of professional associations are examined in relationship to the activities of LACCNY. (Contains 14 references.) (MES)
