The Alienated Llibrarian is a thoughtful, thorough analysis of the proletarianization of professional work throughout history. . . . What this book does is to present a penetrating investigation of the problem, draw thoughtful conclusions and suggest coping strategies. Collection Management This excellent book should attract a wide audience including professional librarians, library school faculty and students, library administrators, and the consulting community. It is highly recommended. Information Processing & Management [Nauratil's] analysis does help us gain an understanding of the issue, just as her concluding chapter on coping, and beyond, may help us address the issue when we are confronted with it. Wilson Library Bulletin Perhaps because of the popular stereotype of librarianship as a low-pressure, nonstressful profession, librarians have been largely overlooked in current research on occupational burnout. Yet, like other human service personnel who are in continual contact with the public, more and more librarians are experiencing burnout and consequent alienation in the workplace. This study is the first to provide a comprehensive analysis of the problem as it exists among today's librarians. Nauratil begins with an examination of the burnout phenomenon and the factors that contribute to stress and alienation in the human service professions. She discusses the additional pressures resulting from the dilemmas faced by libraries, including dwindling budgets, theft of library materials, understaffing, and the demand for broader or improved services. The costs associated with burnout--such as reduced productivity, rapid employee turnover, and deterioration of services--are also considered. The author asks whether alienation and burnout are the inevitable consequences of the librarian's job under contemporary conditions, and assesses the possible long-term effects of current developments both within library systems and in the communities and institutions they serve. Finally, she explores various strategies for coping with this type of occupational hazard and for strengthening the library system as a whole. This carefully researched and clearly written work will be a valuable resource for courses or research in librarianship, occupational sociology, personnel management, and related subjects.

“Gender issues have expanded in recent years and become increasingly nuanced. Therefore, this collection of essays on gender studies resources, services and research from the librarianship perspective are especially welcome. While the focus remains feminist, masculinity and other gender identities are explored through meaningful processes. Chapters include both “traditional” aspects of gender studies, such as cataloging patriarchy and ‘herstory’ content analysis as well as innovative ways to voice under-represented gendered points of view through use of space, curation, and edit-a-thons. The reader will find in-depth field-proven strategies and useful resources for pro-actively and collaboratively addressing gender issues and promoting inclusivity.”—Dr. Lesley S. J. Farmer, California State University Long Beach and ALISE Gender Issues SIG Chair “As a university professor who taught gender studies turned librarian, I fully appreciate the depth and scope of this volume and believe it can provide something useful for all.”—Su Epstein, Director, Saxton B. Little Free Library, Columbia, Connecticut “In this remarkable collection of gender-focused chapters, the writers explore libraries as a vehicle to promote inclusion and acceptance.”—Deloris J. Foxworth, School of Information Science, University of Kentucky “Fulfills the wide expanse of gender-sensitive topics providing new insights and accessibility for the classroom.”—Christine Redman-Waldeyer, Founder and Editor of Adanna, a journal for women, about women “Gender studies in libraries is rarely examined to the extensive level of this anthology...it is evident that libraries are a strong catalyst for social justice and promoting inclusive spaces.”—Jorge E. Perez, Digital Learning & Information Technology Librarian, Medical Library, Florida International University, Miami, Florida “This book has something for everyone interested in gender studies: academic and public librarians, educators and activists, writers and readers--just pick your focus and listen to experts in each area speak from experience.”—Robert Means, English Language & Literature Librarian, Brigham Young University. With the legalization of same-sex marriage and the explosion of LGBTQ news coverage in recent years, gender studies is a subject of intense interest in popular media and a part of the curriculum at many colleges. Libraries realize the importance of supporting the field yet many have difficulty finding resources and programming ideas. This book provides case studies and a range of innovative solutions for better meeting patron needs. Twenty-seven chapters are arranged into sections covering Research and Library Instruction, History and Herstory, Programming, Collections and Beyond, and Resources.

The study attempts to investigate the major sources of stress among librarians of the UST Miguel de Benavides Library. A total of twenty six librarians, composed of twenty four female and two male respondents. The methodology used in this study is descriptive research design, specifically the survey method. The librarian stress was assessed by utilizing the stress diagnostic questionnaire. It is designed to help the subjects identify the extent to which some conditions in the work environment exist and are sources of stress to them. The three categories of work-related stress factors investigated are organizational, work group and job-related factors. The result of the study can be used as a basis for the library management to review and revise existing systems, policies, procedures and practices especially those that are often the sources of stress, and thereby, develop strategies that will help ease or manage stress in the work place. The study suggests that a library stress program may be proposed to address the concerns with stress and further enhance the respondents' performance. Library administrators can use the findings of this study in designing and implementing appropriate stress management programs and short-term strategies that will help not only the librarians but also other library employees to cope with the perceived stressors in the work place and achieve higher productivity.

Complement efforts in the classroom to work on social-emotional learning, and understand the affective needs of young people in library settings. Given the national climate of anxiety and fear, climbing diagnoses of neurological difference, and overall sensitivity, fewer young people come to school able to self-soothe. Building on the work of Nel Noddings, Lynne Evarts, and Meghan Harper, this book focuses on the deliberation, quiet, and reflection sometimes described collectively as mindfulness. From breathing exercises to meditation, mindfulness exercises can be a coping mechanism for at-risk students, and librarians can create an environment, away from the classroom, in which students can explore their abilities to regulate and control their social and emotional responses, skills that underpin information retrieval and analysis. The role of school libraries in promoting mindfulness in the twenty-first century could parallel the quest for intellectual stimulation and self-improvement that informed the public libraries movement in the late nineteenth century. Providing practical suggestions for working in concert with classroom teachers, school counseling staff, and community partners, this guide will inform librarians' practice by increasing awareness of how to create a nurturing space for students in the school library. Highlights how mindfulness strategies have been successfully implemented in classroom and library spaces Recommends a range of easy-to-implement, no- or low-cost adjustments to space and services that can make the library experience more inclusive and positive Harnesses the increasing interest in social-emotional learning and how that undergirds student readiness to learn and confidence as a learner

Emotions are prevalent in the library workplace leading to many questions and areas of analysis worth exploring. For example, what tools for developing emotional intelligence are used effectively in library workplaces? How can emotional labor be managed to minimize the negative effects of emotion work? How can library employees express authentic emotions while still adhering to service expectations? How does dispositional affect how one experiences emotions - influence relationships in the workplace? What role does emotion play in effective as well as ideal library leadership and management? In this volume, we consider how emotions or related concepts such as affect, mood, or discrete feelings intersect with library administration. Offering eleven chapters ranging through inward reflection to outward practice, fourteen authors explore how theory has been applied in the study of emotion in the library workplace and provide a look at future trends in the area. Library managers will take away increased knowledge about how the library workplace can and should operate with consideration toward emotion, and will glean ideas for implementation with their own staff and services.

What do Casanova, Pope Pius XI, Benjamin Franklin and first lady Laura Bush have in common? At one time, all were members of the librarian profession. While librarians are often stereotyped as quiet, shy ladies who wear their gray hair in a dignified bun, that doesn’t reflect the variety and diversity of today’s library professionals. As of 2004, 159,000 people in the United States held the job of librarian. Although only 18 percent of that number was male, the median age for librarians was a young 47—far from the gray-haired, bun-wearing ladies of our imaginations! From pick-up lines to bumper stickers, this volume takes a light-hearted look at the many facets of the librarian occupation. Beginning with statistics, it enumerates gender divisions, personality types, salaries and educational requirements for various types of librarians including public, academic, school and special librarians. Other topics include specific occupational health risks, job-related recreation and novelty gifts for library professionals. Instances of librarians found in prose, poetry, film and musicals are also discussed.
