This post is the second part of a four-part series of items I’m sharing from the first session of my course, “Deconstructing the Low-Morale Experience in Academic Libraries,” which was offered via Library Juice Academy in October 2018. (see Part 1)
NOTE: Items from the course that are shared here are done so with written permission from the student.
In the course’s third week, students were encouraged to focus on how the 2017 study’s themes or Enabling Systems manifested in their experience. Students are able to use narrative or aesthetic outputs to share their responses. Following are Victoria Hernández’s detailed charts outlining:
- Types of abuse she experienced (namely, verbal/written abuse, system abuse, and negligence) and
- The impacts of the abuse and which coping strategies and mitigation methods she used to resolve her low-morale experience.
