Beschreibung

As with its four predecessors, the 1990-2002 compilation of this annotated bibliography continues the commitment of ALA's Committee on the Status of Women in Librarianship to identify published materials on the status of women in the profession and to compile, update, and issue a bibliography of these materials on a regular basis. Materials published in the library and information science literature as well as the literature of related fields (i.e., social sciences, management, higher education, and women's studies) have been compiled. Relevant statistical compilations, such as ARL Salary Surveys, which examine gender as a variable are covered. Topics include career development for women; salary and compensation; sex discrimination; equal stratification in the field; and the history of women in the profession.

Pressestimmen

...continues the previous four source listings of LIS literature on career development for women, salaries, discrimination, image, gender issues, and library history. College & Research Libraries News, October 2006 ...an excellent resource for researchers in librarianship and women's studies...This bibliography is recommended for universities, especially those with library science and women's studies programs. Feminist Collections: A Quarterly Of Women's Studies Resources, Vol. 27, No. 4 (Summer 2006) ...highly recommended... American Reference Books Annual, vol. 38 (2007) This book is the fourth volume in a series of annotated bibliographies that provides a useful and, better yet, interesting guide to written materials regarding women in librarianship for approximately 25 years. Taken together, these are excellent resources...an accurate and insightful account which highlights the issues most relevant to all of us in the profession. This book is highly recommended for all types of libraries. It is an absolute 'must' for those academic libraries that are affiliated with a school or college that teaches librarianship, by whatever name it is called in each place. Women entering the profession need to know how far we have come and how far we still have to go. And men can be enlightened and provoked to thoughtful contemplation as well.
