Demographic Change in Academic Librarianship

Stanley J. Wilder • 2003 • ISBN 0-918006-97-X • 76 pp.

Demographic Change in Academic Librarianship revisits the retirement projections in Stanley Wilder's 1995 age demographics report and presents an updated analysis of demographic trends that are based on newly available ARL and U.S. census data. While the 1995 report focused on the impact of retirements on the profession, Demographic Change in Academic Librarianship recognizes the connection between the aging of the profession and new entries to the population. In addition to presenting new projections for retirements through 2020, this study updates the age profile of librarians in ARL academic libraries and examines the age, race, gender, and skills of new library professionals.

Print copies are available for $55.00 plus shipping & handling.
