Minority professional staff in US ARL university libraries continues to be disproportionately distributed
across the country. Using Figure 2, we can compare the number of minority staff with other staff, region by
region. These patterns of distribution have been relatively stable for the entire history of ARL’s data-collection
experience. Minorities are underrepresented by almost 41% in the West North Central region and by 31% in the
New England region (see Table 27 for a definition of the regions). Proportionately to other regions, there are more
minorities in the Pacific, South Atlantic, and West South Central regions.
