Stress and burnout in library service / Janette S. Caputo

The "interesting" thing is that this title is in my library, the STM library on campus, rather than in the social sciences library. I wonder if this is related to a perceived need in my library back in the early '90s when the book was published.

Some choice bits include

Libido: A decrease in libido also frequently accompanies high levels of stress.... Because of social conventions and concern about job security, satisfaction of sexual needs is likely to occur outside the library workplace....(p 92)

and

Building a Support System: To build a support network, you need to start seeing your peers as likable people....(p 121)

But not so likable that you start working on your libido within the library workplace, I assume.

Better watch out ...
