Professional culture and politics: Conflict at the helm
Libraries have developed strong cultural and professional identities over hundreds of years. Technology organizations, though younger, have also developed a strong culture and identity. Converged organizations can mean the creation of new identities and definitions of professionalism that can positively and negatively impact working environments in converged organizations. This chapter will focus on the need for evolution and change in professional identity and look at the effects that culture, politics, and the religion of professional identity have on converged organizations.
