librarian, faculty statues, tenure, librarians, argument
The issue of whether or not academic librarians should be awarded faculty status with the same status and similar responsibilities given to teaching professors has been debated for more than thirty years among librarians, professors, and administrators alike, and it is still a relevant topic. The popularity and continued relevance of this issue is evident in the number of articles written on this issue—from the 1970s to 2009, more than 100 articles have been published in academic journals exploring, arguing against, or defending the faculty status of the librarians. The majority of the articles published about the faculty status by librarians are written in favor of the practice.
The Library Student Research Grant program encourages outstanding student achievement in research, fosters information literacy, and stimulates original scholarship.
