Abstract:

"Associate Professor at San Jose State University, Stephens encourages curiosity and creativity in his students and all library workers by connecting trends from outside the profession to its bedrock values. With a humanist lens, he reflects on such topics as: how libraries can empower kindness; developing a coterie of kindred spirits at conferences outside libraryland; inspiring creativity in library patrons; the most effective professional development experiences; comfort, joy, and hygge in the library; the characteristics of compassionate leadership; how to contend with a devil's advocate; and mentoring new librarians. Whether you've just landed your first job or a longtime professional, Stephens'; perspective will reenergize your commitment to librarianship and the important work that libraries are doing every day."--Amazon.com.
