The Changing Nature of Jobs: A Paraprofessional Time Series.
Johnson, Carol P.
College & Research Libraries, v57 n1 p59-67 Jan 1996
This study examined job descriptions (1975, 1981, 1990) of three paraprofessional jobs in an academic library technical services department at a small, private liberal arts college to determine changes occurring as a result of automation. It found no significant differences. Although changes were more idiosyncratic than expected, they may indicate the de-skilling effect of computers on library functions. (PEN)
