About this item

The 21 contributors to this book are American practitioners in library science in academic libraries. They reflect on what it means to be a librarian by using techniques of autoethnography, defined here as a type of qualitative research that centers on personal experience. The pieces combine elements and methods such as journals, interviews, speculative fiction, literature reviews, dialogue, narrative, and verse. Some topics considered are lived experience and metadata creation, professional identity in academic library directorship, evaluate criteria for autoethnographic research, black librarianship, and connections between librarianship and social justice.
