Abstract

How do we professionally self-identify and how are we perceived within our institutions? Are we support staff who order books and manage reading lists, or are we professional peers with interests in pedagogy and research? This paper questions our own self-perceptions and reflects on some of the habits and behaviours that lead to us to identify and be identified as support staff. It also considers strategies to make the leap from support to professional peer.
