about

As with its four predecessors, the 1990-2002 compilation of On Account of Sex: An Annotated Bibliography on the Status of Women in Librarianship 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. This comprehensive and substantially annotated bibliography includes 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). Some of the topics covered are career development for women; salary and compensation; sex discrimination; equal stratification in the field; and the history of women in the profession. Pertinent materials from the growing body of gender and feminist studies in the scholarly literature of librarianship and related fields are indexed. Relevant statistical compilations, such as ARL Salary Surveys, which examine gender as a variable are covered. Books, articles, essays, government documents, ERIC documents, dissertations, conference reports, and pamphlets, as well as some non-print materials and electronic documents are included. The book has a broad subject arrangement, and entries within are arranged chronologically. Each annotation provides the researcher with sufficient information about the source to make a decision on its usefulness and applicability.
Betsy Kruger is coordinator of central public services and an associate professor of library administration at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library. Catherine Larson is associate director of the Artificial Intelligence Lab, in the Management Information Systems Department at the University of Arizona.
