Introduction to the Collection

The records of the Dartmouth College Staff Association comprise meeting minutes of the Executive Board and the general association, reports of association committees, announcements, memoranda and membership lists. The records also contain questionnaires on issues of interest to the staff, as well as a study of library staff compensation.

Introduction

In 1955, College Librarian Richard Morin formed a committee to study the feasibility of establishing a library staff association. The committee report recommended that a such an organization be set up to promote the interests and welfare of the staff and the library, and outlined its purposes and goals. The Association constitution was adopted in May 1956. Areas of concern for the DCLSA have been social events, scholarship assistance, and staff morale and welfare.
