Abstract: Are libraries hiring professionals from outside librarianship for positions traditionally held by MLS-degreed librarians at an increasing rate? Such a trend could change the culture of libraries and librarianship in unforeseen ways. The presentation covers the results of an ALA-funded research project to examine hiring practices in public and academic libraries and identify the essential elements of an orientation for non-MLS hires in librarian positions.
