The Human Resources Section exercises responsibility for general personnel administration in all types of libraries. Illustrative of the fields of interest are the recruitment and promotion of able people to positions at all levels of library service, certification of librarians, fair employment practices, equal employment opportunities, classification and pay plans, in-service training of all professional and nonprofessional workers (including those at supervisory levels), principles of tenure and intellectual freedom, personnel administration, relations between libraries and pertinent municipal and educational agencies, staff management, ethics, personnel measurement and guidance, and staff welfare programs, including all types of benefits.

 This section is concerned with general personnel administration information, education, techniques, theories, practices, guidance materials, and research; it is not responsible for those specific but related duties of other ALA units.
