Abstract

This article reports the results of a study of the use of adjunct faculty in delivery of distance education by schools of library and information studies in the U. S. and Canada with American Library Association-accredited master's programs. The study was based on data from ALISE's Library and Information Science Education Statistical Reports; information on websites of the schools; an online survey of schools; and interviews with deans, directors, associate deans or directors, and program heads. Results indicate that adjunct faculty are used in distance delivery to a greater extent than in course delivery overall, that they teach across the spectrum of curriculum subjects, that adjuncts employed in academic libraries constitute the largest component of this group, and there is some degree of geographic dispersion of these adjuncts in a majority of the schools offering distance courses.
