Survey Invitation: Burnout & Generational Trends
Current academic librarians are invited to participate in a new study on academic librarian burnout. This study is being conducted by Brittany Hickey, Research & Instruction Librarian at Columbia College, to explore potential links and trends between specific generations and subcategories of burnout. Results of the study will be included in a forthcoming academic librarian burnout book.
The survey should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. The survey will ask questions about your job satisfaction and work-life balance.
