Upcoming Session

Academic Librarians and Low Morale Development

Co-Sponsored by the Georgia Library Association Academic Library Division

Wednesday, July 18, 2018
2pm Eastern (11am Pacific | 12pm Mountain | 1pm Central)

Description: Kendrick’s 2017 study reveals the traditional causes of low morale are a small piece of a much larger and concerning puzzle in academic library environments, with far-reaching implications for employee retention, library development, and professional development in higher education. Attendees will learn about the factors that enable low-morale, the impacts on those having this experience, and explore ways to positively cope with, resolve, or detect low morale in future workplaces.
