Serials as a public service: We're one big happy family

Academic Article


  • Jennifer Duncan and Sylvia McAphee exemplify career paths that differ from traditionally defined job descriptions and assigned responsibilities. In the course of their careers, both of these librarians have assumed simultaneous roles in Technical and Public Services departments. In this presentation, they challenge librarians working in traditional roles to embrace opportunities to serve in positions outside their assigned job descriptions in spite of barriers imposed by peer or administrative adherence to narrowly defined roles. © 2008 by The Haworth Press.
