Sooner or later, most everyone serves as a caregiver for their children, spouse, aging parents, or others. Caregivers frequently experience work-related challenges due to the demands of their caregiving roles, which in turn frequently affect co-workers. Caregiving is a workplace issue that law librarians must learn to address whatever their role in the institution may be. Greater awareness and knowledge of the issues involved, as well as learning possible solutions to these issues, will enable librarians to better navigate the workplace and deal with co-workers who are acting as caregivers.
