Even though service is important in faculty work life, it is understudied compared to teaching and research responsibilities (Neumann & Terosky, 2007). This is especially true among library faculty, who often have service as a component of retention, promotion, and tenure guidelines. This session describes the results of a recent study to determine whether tenured and tenure-track librarians in public academic research libraries feel satisfied with their service roles and responsibilities. This research explores librarians’ perceptions of their service load(s) and whether they feel it is allocated fairly.

Learning objectives:
As a result of attending this session, participants will be able to explain factors that affect tenured and tenure-track librarians’ strategies for managing their service loads.
As a result of attending this session, participants will be able to describe what literature in higher education says about factors that affect service engagement.
As a result of attending this session, participants will be able to reflect on how their choices around service are similar to and different from the study participants
