Human Resources 1956-2001, 1970-1996 [subgrp]

The Human Resources series is organized into three sub-series: Staff Handbooks, Library Position Classifications, and Internship Programs.

 
Staff Handbooks 1956-1981 [series]

The Staff Handbooks subseries, 1956-1987, traces the evolution of library policies from the late 1950s to the mid-1980s. The staff manuals were regularly updated as library policies, such as purchasing books, library keys, and authorizing travel funds, changed. The manuals detail changing procedures for Administration, Collection Development, Personnel, Reader Services, Special Staff Circulation, and Technical Services. Organizational Charts are included in the Staff Manuals.

Library Position Classifications 1963-1991 [series]

The Library Position Classifications subseries, 1963-1991(bulk 1971-1979), is organized alphabetically and chronologically. Administrative files are arranged alphabetically and precede position description materials. Administrative files detail the position evaluation process and reconsideration requests. Position description materials are organized chronologically. Records contain detailed descriptions of job summary, work performed, periodic duties, job qualifications, education, and experience. During the 1970s, the library went through a significant restructuring period. The records in this sub-series shed light on the changing needs of the library and its staff.

Internship Programs 1983-2001 [series]

The Internship Programs subseries, 1983-2001, is organized chronologically. The records highlight two programs: Research Library Residency Program and Library Minority Training Internship Program (LM TIP or TIP). The Internship Programs subseries includes photographs and negatives in Box 293.

Records for the Research Library Residency Program highlight the internal proposal process, recruitment, and seminar series associated with the residency program. Research Library Residents held a two-year, non-continuing professional appointment. The residency program included a Seminar Series created to introduce residents to the wide range issues shaping research libraries. Records include materials from the recruitment process, library division proposals, resident application materials, seminar materials, and seminar exit surveys.

Library Minority Training Internship Program's (LM TIP) records detail the origins of the program as well as some of the challenges faced by minority library staff. LM TIP was developed to recruit, train, and mentor people of color for library positions. The program sought a diverse pool of applicants not only from the University of Michigan Personnel sources, but also from local churches, campus organizations, and multi-cultural organizations throughout Southeastern Michigan. Internship positions ran between 9 months and 2 years.
