In “Extinguished: Exploring Librarian Burnout”, we shared results from our study on librarian burnout. The study surveyed current and former librarians, as well as library school students. The focus of the study was to determine if there is a link between working while in library school and later experiencing burnout as a librarian. We hoped to discover the prevalence of librarian burnout, determine if burnout is more common in LIS professionals who worked while enrolled in graduate classes, and begin a conversation about the realities of our profession.
