Meeting of New England College and Research Librarians

The New England College and Research Li- brarians, a chapter of ACRL, convened its first meeting on November 28, 1973, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in Cam- bridge.

The program, on “Faculty Status for Librarians,” was pre- pared by the NECRL Steering Committee: Thomas H. Cahalan, chairman; Richard A. Olsen, and Roger J. Poulin. The guidelines prepared by Har- vard’s Study Commit- tee on Professional Li- brary Personnel (Harvard Library Bulletin, v.21, no.3, July 1973) were presented by Edwin E. Williams, associate university librarian at Harvard, and Philip E. Leinbach, associate university librarian for personnel at Harvard. C. James Schmidt, chairman of the ACRL Committee on Academic Status and director of libraries at the State University of New York at Albany, analyzed the Harvard guidelines in terms of ACRL’s policies on faculty status for academic librarians (“Standards for Faculty Status for College and University Librarians” and “Joint Statement on Faculty Status of College and University Librarians,” CRLN, September 1972). The program attracted nearly 175 librarians from six New England states.

ACRL’s contribution to the program is part of an increased effort of the Association of College and Research Libraries to develop its chapters through participation of ACRL officers and committee chairmen in programs on issues of concern to academic librarians at the state and regional levels.
