Description: The Precarity in Libraries research project was started in 2017. Our goal is to provide information on the extent and effects of precarious work in Canadian libraries. Our primary published work consists of: -- Semistructured interviews with library workers on issues associated with precarious library work (https://doi.org/10.21083/partnership.v14i2.5169) -- Coding and analysis of postings on the Partnership Job Board with an eye towards precarity (https://doi.org/10.18438/eblip29783) -- A book chapter on precarious employment as a dysfunctional practice in libraries (in press, preprint at https://summit.sfu.ca/item/21916) This OSF page collects the presentation slides, data, and other content created over the span of the project, and we also share project news, related work from other folks, and memes on Twitter @LISprecarity. Our team consists of four librarians: Adena Brons (SFU), Ean Henninger (UCW), Chloe Riley (SFU), and Crystal Yin (JIBC), all currently living and working on the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem), and Katzie First Nations (Burnaby, Vancouver, and Surrey, British Columbia).
