English abstract

In many academic libraries in the United States librarians have the same academic status as the teaching faculty. This status has an impact on librarians´ tasks because it attempts to equate the academic requirements and duties of both professions. This article compares both the duties of librarians and professors in order to demonstrate that, although both professions have a teaching nature, they have different purposes.

Spanish abstract

En muchas bibliotecas universitarias en Estados Unidos los bibliotecarios tienen status docente, al igual que los profesores que dictan cátedra. Dicho status incide en el quehacer bibliotecario debido a que se intenta equiparar la preparación académica requerida y las funciones de ambas profesiones. En este artículo, se describe el quehacer de los bibliotecarios universitarios en comparación con el de los profesores para demostrar que, si bien la naturaleza de ambas profesiones es docente, ambas persiguen propósitos diferentes.
