Cataloguing men: charting the male librarian's experience through the perceptions and positions of men in libraries

Hickey, Andrew (2006) Cataloguing men: charting the male librarian's experience through the perceptions and positions of men in libraries. Journal of Academic Librarianship, 32 (3). pp. 286-295. ISSN 0099-1333

Abstract

This study explores the perceptions of male librarians working in an academic library. Underpinning the methodology of this paper is a series of in depth interviews conducted over several years with a group of selected male librarians. This paper suggests that the meanings constructed by male librarians in the non-traditional work environment have broader implications within organisational contexts.
