The Renewal Seminar offers a pathway for individuals to increase their awareness of the associated frameworks, development, outcomes, and emerging countermeasures of low morale, which is defined as repeated and protracted exposure to workplace abuse and neglect (Kendrick, 2017). Learning more about these concerns can help promote authentic civility and collegiality in North American libraries and reduce the factors that can cause employee mistreatment and misconduct in library workplaces.
