About this product
- DescriptionThe Librarian Stereotype: Deconstructing Presentations and Perceptions of Information Work serves as a response to passionate discussions regarding how librarians are perceived. Through twelve chapters, the book reignites an examination of librarian presentation within the field and in the public eye, employing theories and methodologies from throughout the social sciences. The ultimate goal of this volume is to launch productive discourse and inspire action in order to further the positive impact of the information professions. Through deconstructing the perceived truths of our profession and employing a critical eye, we can work towards improved status, increased diversity, and greater acceptance of each other.
