Description: This presentation discusses research and publication in academic libraries. A survey of ARL academic library deans and directors was conducted to determine how they encourage the scholarly productivity of librarians. The results indicate that a variety of strategies are used, including mentoring programs, support for external training, library research committees, manuscript editing assistance, software support, student or graduate assistant help, formal training programs, research funding, release time and sabbaticals. Information also was provided about the requirements for promotion, tenure and continuing appointment at ARL libraries.
