Description: The Precarity in Libraries project aims to provide new information on the extent and effects of precarious work in libraries in Canada. Our current work consists of: - semistructured interviews with library workers on issues associated with precarious library work (published in Partnership: The Canadian Journal of Library and Information Practice and Research Vol 14 No 2, 2019: https://doi.org/10.21083/partnership.v14i2.5169) - coding and analysis of precarity in postings on the Partnership Job Board (collection ending November 15, 2019). As of July 2020, we are: - revising our article based on job posting analysis - outlining a book chapter on precarity and dysfunction in libraries Future work may include an online survey on perceptions and experiences of precarious work. We are four librarians: Adena Brons, Ean Henninger, Chloe Riley, and Crystal Yin, all currently affiliated with Simon Fraser University, located on the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem), and Katzie First Nations (Burnaby, Vancouver & Surrey, British Columbia).
