Publication Date

Abstract

The author found it curious and disappointing when she couldn’t find many published stories about the experiences of academic librarians who are also mothers. Where were mother-librarians represented in the library and information science literature? Using narrative and personal photographs, the author shares her stories of being a tenure-track librarian and a mother of two children. This article is an attempt to give mother-librarians the opportunity to see their lived experiences reflected in the literature, and, most importantly, to invite other mother-librarians to share their own stories.
