Yelinek, Kathryn; Hinchcliff, Marilou
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v35 n1 p46-56 Jan 2009
The results of a survey to determine the training needs and normative experiences of temporary government documents librarians are presented. The results indicate that temporary librarians tend to work in academia, have been in librarianship for a shorter time period, and have fewer technical processing skills than permanent documents librarians.
