The American Association of University Professors has released a revised statement on the need for colleges to grant librarians rights and responsibilities that are on par with those of other faculty members. The new document, revised with the Association of College and Research Libraries, updates a 1973 statement that calls for the granting of faculty status to college librarians who are involved in teaching and research. It states that librarians’ participation in those areas is “the essential criterion of faculty status.” The new version also includes details about librarians’ role in governance, and adds a recommendation about librarians’ salaries for fiscal-year appointments.
