Participation on national committees by Nevada academic librarians

Document Type



In 1992, a survey was sent to all academic librarians in the state of Nevada to elicit responses concerning inerest and participation in national library committees. A strong correlation for university librarians was found between interest/participation and the demands of the tenure system. Impact of committee work on job performance, importance of local committees as opposed to national committees, rewards of committee participation, and reasons for lack of participation are discussed. Additional areas for research are suggested.
