Today we have a two-fer, both research related and speaking to the empowerment that I always hope and wish to come of my work.
First up, this tweet about my low-morale work:
Then, LaJuan Pringle, a librarian at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Public Library System (we also worked together on the Metrolina Library Association Board), shared with me a post he wrote on the rare joy of being – and working with – other Black male librarians. He cited my 2009 study of the history and career motivations for African American male librarians.
These messages keep my spirits up and I’m very thankful to know that my current and past work makes a positive difference in a profession I care a great deal about.
