The teleworking librarian? : possibilities for librarians to perform their duties from a remote workplace (English)
Abstract [en]

We studied how librarians would adapt to telework, the performance of job responsibilities from home. We found'that all duties could be accomplished. but to varied extents. Computerbased searches, interlibrary loans, acquisitions, indexing and telephone reference services are the duties most likely to adapt to telework whereas cataloguing and classification probably are best performed in the ordinary workplace. Most duties would demand access to technical means of assistance when performed from home. Connections to the library's local network, directly or via modem, are required because it is unrealistic to expect librarians to telework with fewer tools than they ordinarily have available. Although librarians generally believe that teleworking will not have a large irnpact on the operation of the library, most would like to telework. Whether teleworking is a viable strategy depends on the characteristics of the duties, the librarian's desire to telework, but also on the size of the library, the size of its staff, the library's activities, and how work is distributed between librarians.
