Collegiality Matters: Massachusetts Public Higher Education Librarians' Perspective
Freedman, Shin
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v38 n2 p108-114 Mar 2012
It is no secret that collegiality matters in academe regardless of the size and type of institution. When it comes to promotion, reappointment and tenure, the invocation of collegiality occurs. This paper aims to examine the perception and issues surrounding collegiality in the academic library setting. The data, based on the survey results of the Massachusetts public higher education librarians, reveals gender disparity on collegiality issues, attitudes and perception. The study findings also include that congeniality is not the same as collegiality. (Contains 8 tables and 3 figures.)
