Seeking Full Citizenship: A Defense of Tenure Faculty Status for Librarians
Coker, Catherine; vanDuinkerken, Wyoma; Bales, Stephen
College & Research Libraries, v71 n5 p406-420 Sep 2010
Tenure status for library faculty in the academic environment is coming under increasing attack from administration, faculty members in other departments, and non-academics. This is due to incorrect perceptions about what academic librarians do and how they serve their profession. This paper describes the many challenges faculty librarians face in balancing their work load with service and scholarship; justifies why academic librarians need tenure; and ultimately proves that tenure and faculty status for academic librarians are an absolute necessity.
