The campus community is invited to attend the following presentation by Stanley Wilder, University Librarian:
The Academic Library Workforce in Transition: New Demographic Data from the Association of Research Libraries
Professional staffing at academic libraries has been in a state of upheaval for the past 20 years. Unusually old and aging quickly, this group is also experiencing tremendous growth in IT positions, and now a sudden decrease in traditional skill positions like reference and cataloging. Stanley Wilder will draw on his extensive work with demographic data from the Association of Research Libraries to present new findings from the 2010 data collection. What do these trends mean for the future of research libraries?
