On Becoming Faculty Librarians: Acculturation Problems And Remedies, W. Bede Mitchell, Bruce Morton

Library Faculty Publications

The acculturation of librarians to faculty librarian positions is compared and contrasted to the socialization process of the professoriate. Substantive differences in graduate library education and the attitudes it cultivates are discussed. Librarians are seen, for the most part, as being ill-prepared to assume peer roles within a university faculty. Suggestions are offered to remedy this dysfunctional pattern.
