Title:Library Trends 56 (2) Fall 2007: Gender Issues in Information Needs and Services
Contributor(s):Ingold, Cindy; Searing, Susan E.
Information needs
Abstract:Although North American society has made enormous strides in the past half-century, we have yet to reach true equality between men and women. Libraries and information workers continue to operate in a social environment where information needs and services are affected by gender and gender politics. We believe that the articles in this issue represent an inspiring cross-section of current work on gender issues in information needs and services, both among scholars and among practicing librarians. But there are many topics untreated here, ripe for future research and reporting. The Women’s Studies Section of the Association of College and Research Libraries recently compiled a research agenda that outlines many intriguing areas for further exploration ( research/resagenda.html). Some of the questions proposed by this research agenda are answered in this issue, but many remain to be tackled.
