Abstract

The objective of this empirical study was to explore the impact of community-led work on the (de-)professionalization process among public library professionals in Canada through the analyzation of transcripts from 11 semi-structured interviews and a guideline document. The results were analyzed and sensitized through Abbott’s professionalization theory (1988) and Bourdieu’s praxeology theory (1986; 1992). With the methodology of grounded theorization, the study found that the profession has changed, and is changing, into the direction of possible deprofessionalization, due to not only external but also internal factors in the form of a collegial conflict.
