From Kelleen Maluski: Come be a part of our writing/projecting group! These are regularly scheduled Zoom sessions where people can spend time working on their writing, special projects, etc. and have a community of accountability. These sessions will start with 1 minute each to discuss your projects or goals and end with a wrap up of how the process went. There should be about an hour total of writing/projecting time and we will also create breakout rooms if people want to discuss their work more and/or have writing partners. Open to students and all library workers. More information and how to join here.
Call for Participants – Empowering Neurodivergent Librarians Research Study
We are seeking participants for an IMLS-funded research project conducted by faculty and graduate students from the Information School at the University of Washington. This research investigates the challenges and opportunities that neurodivergent librarians experience in library workplaces. We are inviting U.S. library workers aged 18 and older to participate in this study. You are eligible to participate if:
- You are a neurodivergent (autistic or ADHD) librarian or supervisor who is currently employed at a public or academic library, or who has worked in public or academic libraries in the past five years.
- You are or have been a co-worker of a neurodivergent (autistic or ADHD) librarian, and are currently employed at a public or academic library or have been in the past five years.
- You are or have been a manager or supervisor of a neurodivergent (autistic or ADHD) librarian, and are currently employed at a public or academic library or have been in the past five years.
Currently, neurodivergent librarians remain underrepresented in the profession, and there is very little research and few established practices to guide their recruitment, onboarding, retention, and advancement. The goal of this study is to is to build libraries’ capacity, at the team level, to improve employment outcomes of neurodivergent librarians, including representation, empowerment, equity, belonging, and advancement.
