"Libraries hire professionals from outside librarianship for positions traditionally held by MLS-degreed librarians. Hear results of ALA-funded research to examine hiring practices in public and academic libraries and the essential elements of an orientation for non-MLS hires in librarian positions. We really need research on how to strengthen the MLS and stop this dilution of library staff. Hear and protest!"
