Learning and Earning: Analysis of HEA Title II-B Graduate Library Fellowship Program Recipients, Fiscal Years 1985-1991.
Owens, Janice
This report summarizes a descriptive survey of fellowships awarded under the Library Education and Human Resource Development Program, Title II-B of the Higher Education Act of 1965. The study covered the years 1985-91 and was undertaken to determine the success of the fellows who were recruited into the training program, and to determine if their training enabled them to enter the library profession or re-enter with enhanced skills to further their careers. During the 7 years covered by the study, 88 doctoral, 17 post-master's, and 223 master's fellowships were awarded. Overall, the study revealed that 93 percent of the fellows received or will receive their degrees. There were no significant differences in the completion rates of males and females and between minorities and nonminorities. Seventeen tables provide data on sex and gender; post-training status; the number of fellows by degree sought, race, and gender for each of the 7 years; the number of fellows recruited by training level and post-training field of employment, and yearly funding results.
