Abstract:
This presentation (of 11 Microsoft PowerPoint slides and a narrative in Microsoft Word) at the 2005 ALISE Conference held at Boston (Jan. 11-14) was delivered in Session 3.4 titled LIS Faculty and the Future. It is a follow-up study to a previous one which was reported at the ALISE 2004 conference about PhD students in LIS. 148 Curriculum Vitae packages received by ALISE in search of a position as future LIS faculty were analyzed. Of the 106 CVs with usable data, the study found that 45 dissertations were library-oriented, 25 in the area of information theory, 6 were information technology, and 20 were indeterminate or outside the field. Seavey concludes by asking "Do we have a crisis?" and notes that the answer "depends on the meaning of crisis" while also acknowledging that there are "definitely problems within speciality areas."
