dc.description.abstract In 1975, the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) and the Canadian Association of College and University Libraries (CACUL) officially recognized the concept of academic status for Canadian academic librarians. This recognition was both welcomed and feared by both rank-and-file librarians as well as the library administrators. As a result, the application of academic status across Canadian universities has been inconsistent in both rights and responsibilities and has been easily confused with the faculty status accorded to academic librarians in the United States. This chapter will lay out some of the issues of the day that culminated in the recognition of academic status, will discuss the controversies around academic status for Canadian academic librarians, and will touch on some of the inconsistencies and challenges that remain to this day. en_US
