Core webinar: Acknowledging Student Labor in Libraries
Date: Tuesday, February 1, 2022
All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11 am Pacific, noon
Mountain, 1 pm Central, and 2 pm Eastern time.
This is the first session in a three-part series regarding Access and Equity
Description: At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the authors used
phenomenological research methods to conduct surveys and interviews of
student workers at an academic library. We intend to present the full
results of these surveys with transcripts from interviews with student
workers in order to elevate the voices of student employees to build a more
equitable and diverse workplace. We conclude with suggestions from student
workers regarding ways to incorporate students in the decision making
structure of the library as we move forward out of the pandemic.
By the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
1. Summarize the benefit of incorporating student feedback into
organizational decision making;
2. Name at least two methods to improve student worker experiences in the
3. Evaluate their own workplace environment to identify areas of
improvement for student workers.
