Avoiding Librarian Burnout is one of the sites I regularly visit for career management insights.

I came across this recent item on "library burnout".

The very nature of library work is, according to the article, a "continuous round of interruptions" which can end up destroying focus and frying anyone's brain. Equally important is the professional culture of librarianship with its built-in idea that we just can't say no.

The article contains useful tips on how to avoid burnout. And no, the suggestions do not include long liquid lunches or occasionally jumping over the reference counter to throttle obnoxious people. But the advice in the article will keep you sane and on the right side of the law.
