This presentation explores how vocational awe and ghostly labour intersect with precarious work in libraries and by discussing the potential for action both within and outside of those constraints. What do these explorations reveal about labour structures, library service, and work culture? How are the values of our profession discarded, reaffirmed, or changed? Together with sharing findings from our research project on precarious work in Canadian libraries, this presentation reimagines library labour relationships and otherwise explores solutions to the negative effects of precarity.
