Review of The Librarian Stereotype book!

"Librarians Pagowsky (Univ. of Arizona) and Rigby (Univ. of Oregon) have assembled an impressive collection of scholarly essays documenting the facets and effects of stereotypes within librarianship and other information professions. Contributors emphasize empirical data and cultural analysis, using a range of methods to explore how librarians understand themselves and are understood by others. Specific essays focus on gender, race and ethnicity, the formation of professional identity, the “sexy librarian” trope, the activist archivist, and tattooed librarians, among other topics. Written primarily for information professionals, this volume gestures toward dynamics observable in other fields: the way in which gender is deployed in narratives about a profession over time, for example, or the relationship between our bodies and our reception as professionals. One hopes these themes can be picked up and interrogated further beyond the confines of intraprofessional debate.

VERDICT A valuable contribution to the growing body of literature on professional identity and intersectional politics, this title will be a useful resource for those wishing to critically explore how librarians are inspired and constrained by the stories they tell, and are told, about who they are.”
