Librarian Working from Home stock photo

Librarian Working from Home Librarianship was not a planned career path. Right out of college I interviewed for a photography position at a library and got offered another position instead. I’ve done various library jobs ever since. In 2018 if someone said when I graduated from library school with my Master’s in Information, that I’d be doing most of my job as a medical librarian remotely from my desk at home; I’d have laughed. Most people can’t envision a librarian existing outside walls of books. It’s 2022- libraries are virtual, just like everything else! At the university medical library I work for, most the resources were already online way before the pandemic. Once we figured out how to transition services and personal interactions, having a hybrid work schedule became easier to envision for the librarians. Working from home for the past 2 years has had its ups and downs. I miss the quiet of being in the library and conversations with colleagues. I don’t miss being in traffic 5 days a week. I only have to go in twice a week. I certainly don’t miss getting up early everyday to drive to work! As non-morning person, waking up with my natural body rhythm has been great! However, in a small apartment, my desk is in my living room. Often I’m also thinking about chores, receiving deliveries or distracted by noise from yard maintenance or neighbors. I also work later than I should since I don’t have to leave work to go home. It’s been challenging setting boundaries for work-life balance; the lines have become so much blurrier. I have lots more meetings, Zoom makes it easier to pack more interaction into the day. It feels like I have to be more “on” to prove I’m actually working. It can be exhausting. I’ve been able to balance it with yoga and other self-care. Personally, I hope to continue having the option to work a hybrid work week, even as things open up. Being able to help medical students, clinicians and researchers from the comfort of my home has been good for my own health and well-being. Standing Desk Stock Photo
