The mindful librarian: connecting the practice of mindfulness to librarianship
Added November 7, 2016

In an academic environment of rapid change and doing more with less, librarians are increasingly challenged to manage stress, remain resilient, and take a proactive approach to complex issues that affect our profession. Our research and writing examines how mindfulness, while helpful in its own right, can be specifically applied to research, information literacy-related instruction, modern reference services, the academic liaison role, and library management in a college or university setting as well as in the K-12 setting through the role of the solo school librarian. The Mindful Librarian offers a mindful perspective for librarians, that can help them proactively deal with changes which affect all libraries and their constituencies and enhance communications with faculty, staff, and students. Mindfulness practice provides tools for better focus, greater resiliency, and reduced stress.-- Back cover
