Women's Status Within Libraries 1950s to 1980s.
Simon, Jane
Australian Library Journal, v46 n3 p270-87 Aug 1997
Oral histories of retired Australian librarians show the sexual division of libraries from pre-1950s to the 1980s. Discussion includes the appeal of on-the-job training; public and private roles of women; the marriage bar; discrimination; lack of skill recognition; wage inequities; feminist resistance; sexual harassment; unions; and electronic libraries and the push for professionalism.
