Abstract

Academic libraries segregate their personnel into professional and supportive categories almost exclusively on the basis of the American Library Association's (ALA) accredited master's degree. This article surveys the professional discourses of academic librarians and adopts a critical theory methodology to critique this practice. The authors recommend a refined classification of personnel without repudiating professionalism.
