From the January 2020 Course: Suggested Resources from Students

This post is the second of a two-part series of items I’m sharing from the third session of my course, “Deconstructing the Low-Morale Experience in Academic Libraries,” which was offered via Library Juice Academy in January 2020.

During the course, students shared resources that they have considered or that are helping them change their work culture or better understand issues related to low-morale (i.e., burnout, vocational awe, emotional labor, etc.).

Here is the full listing:
