          The Barnard Women's Center recently sent out a questionnaire to
people i.vtlncd in women's studies requesting their opinions on a proposed
interdisciplinary bibliography of the year's work in women's studies. As
the response soundly supported our project, we would now like to proceed
viii collecting information both from organizations and from individuals.
Our purpose is to incorporate the year's academic studies on women, either
completed or in progress, along with'information on innovative action
projects such as women‘s health collectives, comunity day care, legal
aid, women's publications, feminist theater, film projects, and so forth.
In this way we hope to spark a livelier interchange between theory and
practice.

What we need from you in the space provided below is a description of
the research or project in which you are involved. Or if you know of an
individual or group whose work should be included, please either let us
know about it or else pass this request for information on to them. Finally
from those associated with women's publications, we would welcome any pub-
licity for our project that your publication can provide.

Thank you in advance for your participation.

"Career Patterns of University Employees? a study of work satisfaction
as reported by all employees (female and male, black and white,
faculty and staff) of a university. A onewpage quest1onna1re was
administered by campus mail; nearly 4000 usable questionnaires were
returned which represents a response rate of 60%. Analysis now
going forward. The object is to identify factors affecting work
satisfaction and to recommend policy change, if warranted. I am
testing hypotheses having to do with work satisfaction reported by
women and minority employees.

"Career Aspirations of Undergraduate Students," a study of differential
in work plans between women and men college students is planned for
Fall 1972. Questionnaire has been preutested during current (Spring
19723 term. We aim to isolate factors affecting the seeming
dampening of women's career aspirations which appears to occur during
undergraduate years at maleworiented institutions and to compare
student attitudes current1y reported with those reported by Goldsen,
Rosenberg et al in the 1950's. This is being undertaken in
cooperation with the local chapter of NOW and the university's
Career Center. The final report will include recommendations for
changes in counseling programs and practices for undergraduate women.
