Personalizing professionalism: The professional identity experiences of LIS graduates in non-library roles
Fraser-Arnott, Melissa Ann (2016) Personalizing professionalism: The professional identity experiences of LIS graduates in non-library roles. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
This thesis is a grounded theory study of the professional identity experiences of library and information science graduates in non-library roles. It produced a theory called the theory of personalizing professionalism that identified two identities which are held by individuals and which are both influenced by their interactions with others inside and outside of their professional groups:an internal appraisal of self (which includes their perceptions of their profession, motivations and interests, and socialization experiences) and an externally expressed identity (which guides how individuals present themselves to others through their use of labels and their career strategies).
