The Role of the Paraprofessional in Technical Services in Libraries.
Howarth, Lynne C.
Library Trends, v46 n3 p526-39 Win 1998
Library automation and outsourcing now perform many functions (selection, acquisitions, cataloging and classification, physical processing, binding and repairs, circulation) traditionally handled by technical services. Examines a possible future role for paraprofessionals, arguing that survival is dependent on defining a niche unique from clerical support staff or professional librarians in technical services.
