As with its four predecessors, the 1990-2002 compilation of this annotated bibliography continues the commitment of ALA's Committee on the Status of Women in Librarianship to identify published materials on the status of women in the profession and to compile, update, and issue a bibliography of these materials on a regular basis. Materials published in the library and information science literature as well as the literature of related fields (i.e., social sciences, management, higher education, and women's studies) have been compiled. Relevant statistical compilations, such as ARL Salary Surveys, which examine gender as a variable are covered. Topics include career development for women; salary and compensation; sex discrimination; equal stratification in the field; and the history of women in the profession.
