Feedback form is now closed.
Balancing personal responsibilities with an ever-growing list of professional responsibilities is likely perplexing for many academic librarians. For urban, tenure-track academic librarians, achieving a suitable work life balance may be the key to meeting their scholarly obligations and reaching a greater level of career success. This presentaton will highlight the major findings of a study on work-life balance, share successful strategies for practicing librarians, discuss some of the specific challenges for minority populations, and offer workshop participants an opportunity to share their own strategies for executing workplace flexibility through benefits and policies.
