This book covers the history and the labor, the struggles and the economics, the challenges and the realities of women in librarianship from 1987 through 1992. The third supplement to The Role of Women in Librarianship, 1876-1976 (1979), the collective work of a dozen women, this annotated bibliography is the most comprehensive source available on the status of women in librarianship during the period covered.
