Description

Title:Claiming Our Space: A Quantitative and Qualitative Picture of Disabled Librarians
Author(s):Brown, Robin; Sheidlower, Scott
Subject(s):Disabled librarians
Self-identified disabled librarians
Abstract:Librarianship is made up of many different sorts of people. Until now, while research has been done on nondisabled librarians and who they are, little research has been undertaken on disabled librarians. This piece is based upon a research survey that draws on the experiences of librarians who are willing to self-identify as disabled librarians. The survey was further followed up by interviews. The authors want to enrich everyone's understanding of what it means to be a librarian and, at the same time, to be disabled.
