Lived Experience of Academic Librarians of Color
Swanson, Juleah; Tanaka, Azusa; Gonzalez-Smith, Isabel
College & Research Libraries, v79 n7 p876-894 Nov 2018
Lived experience encompasses the perceptions, feelings, and context of an individual's human experience. Researching lived experience can be a way of understanding identity, emotions, perceptions, and contexts to develop a more thoughtful understanding of human experience. This research explores the following questions: what are the lived experiences of people of color who work as academic librarians in the profession; what are the contexts of their experiences; and how do these librarians see themselves? Through qualitative research using a phenomenological approach, this research reveals the complex, nuanced, and varied lived experiences of academic librarians of color navigating a predominantly white profession.
