Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

October 2006 College & Research Libraries News
...continues the previous four source listings of LIS literature on career development for women, salaries, discrimination, image, gender issues, and library history.
Feminist Collections: A Quarterly Of Women's Studies Resources
...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.
vol. 38 (2007) American Reference Books Annual
...highly recommended...
Journal of Access Services
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.
