Law Library Journal
I am concerned with a defense for the law library administrator who has been presented with serious arguments contradicting his beliefs that a law librarian's education should include both law and librarianship, and, often in issue with it, that there are special aspects of law library administration which prevent its fitting neatly into a unified library system. The frequency with which the two beliefs are attacked simultaneously results from the fact that, salary scales being in issue, librarians object more heatedly to the added cost of legal training than do lawyers to the added cost of librarianship training; when they object to the point of blocking attempts of the lawyer administrators to obtain legally trained librarians, there often develops a struggle over who shall run the law library.
