Title:Helping LIS Faculty Know What it’s Like to Work in a Library
Author(s):Freeburg, Darin
Subject(s):Faculty development
MLIS
LIS education
Public librarianship
Academic librarianship
Abstract:The current study is a follow-up to a 2019 study that found that practicing librarians viewed the MLIS as irrelevant and outdated. Focus group transcripts from that study were analyzed to uncover additional questions, potential solutions, and suggestions for further study. Participants were concerned that faculty were disconnected from the library as a workplace. The current study suggests the use of faculty development workshops, led by practicing librarians, to help keep faculty current on library practice.
