The world of higher education is very much in transition in the United States, and there has been a great deal of soul-searching and heated conversation regarding the increase in non-tenure track faculty, just to name one of many areas of pressing concern. A number of organizations and clearinghouses have been set up as of late to provide resources and commentary on these subjects, and the National Clearinghouse on Academic Worklife (NCAW) is one of them. Created in 2005, the NCAW is located at the University of Michigan's Center for the Education of Women and they have created this online bibliographic record of materials that cover such subjects as benefits, tenure, career development, and business models in higher education. Visitors to the site can search the clearinghouse archive, or also look over the "Features" area, which includes recent additions to the NCAW database. Also, they may wish to suggest resources for inclusion in the database and sign up to receive the NCAW email newsletter.
