In April I presented as part of a panel on wellness for librarians for IFLA’s Continuing Professional Development and Workforce Learning (CPDWL) Section and New Professionals Special Interest Group (NPSIG).
Description: Since March 2020 librarians, along with the entire world, have been experiencing acute levels of stress and anxiety caused by the pandemic. Recently, stressors related to civil conflict have exacerbated panic levels. How can we help our exhausted library workers serving exhausted library patrons? Which resources can help library workers with burnout and anxiety? There are no magical solutions, but by working together over time we can build networks to support each other.
