Who Is My Professor? Understanding the Work Life of School Library Faculty Members
Branch-Mueller, Jennifer
Knowledge Quest, v46 n5 p40-47 May-Jun 2018
Have you ever wondered about the people teaching the next generation of school library professionals? You probably know that they prepare course outlines, set assignments, and mark papers. They might present at your local or state conferences, or perhaps you know them from their work on committees that promote the new AASL Standards. Maybe you have read about their work in "School Library Research" or "Knowledge Quest." This article asks: What else do they do as school library faculty members? This research used a snowball sampling technique to find school library faculty members working in universities around the world and who read and write in English. The participants in this study work in a variety of units, departments, schools, colleges, and faculties. This study contributes to research about the experiences of faculty members at the university level. It presents the realities of teaching, research, and service for twenty school library faculty members working on six continents.
