In the second section, Case Histories, Martha Bufton discusses the issues of gender and status at Carleton University in the broader context of the pursuit of equity in Ontario during the 1960s and 1970s. Harriet Sonne de Torrens describes the early history of librarianship at the University of Toronto, including the evolution of library education and the fight for recognition and status of librarians. Robin Inskip and David Jones describe the parallel movement in Ontario’s system of community colleges, focusing on their struggle for academic equivalency to teachers and equal pay for work of equal value.
