Description

Are tenure-track librarian positions really golden these days? So golden that they may cause extreme burn-out in the profession? This panel features three California State University (CSU) librarians who will share how their research and professional experiences on the tenure-track inform their practices and understanding of “burn-out” in the profession. The presentation will provide a general overview of burn-out and tenure-track issues within the CSUs, and the psychometrics measuring burn-out sentiments for tenure-track librarians, particularly PoC. This discussion will provide useful feedback and present preliminary results of the research in progress and exploratory data on the ongoing challenges of retention and suspension of diversity efforts, and librarians who are in these working categories. Attendees will learn about the different and systemic experiences at the CSUs, and how to build upon the research to inform further understanding of this complex issue involving emotional labor, race, and class in today’s profession.
