This post is the first of a two-part series of items I’m sharing from the second session of my course, “Deconstructing the Low-Morale Experience in Academic Libraries,” which was offered via Library Juice Academy in May 2019.
Throughout the course, students shared readings that are helping them change their work culture or better understand issues related to low-morale (i.e., burnout, vocational awe, emotional labor, etc.).
A full list of suggested items coming from the May course follows.
