Wilder, Stanley J.
Journal of Library Administration, v28 n3 p15-32 1999
Discusses the shape of the ARL (Association of Research Libraries) age distribution due to the unprecedented increase in the number of library positions in the 1960s and the subsequent reduction in the rate of hire. Considers the limited mobility of many ARL librarians and the age at entry of new hires. (Author/LRW)
