Book Chapter or Section
This chapter appears in In Our Own Voices, Redux: The Faces of Librarianship Today, edited by Teresa Y. Neely and Jorge R. López-McKnight. Using Kenji Yoshino's writings about racial covering, I use an autoethnography approach to investigate how I came into the field of librarianship. I reflect on my experience as a second-generation Taiwanese-American woman growing up in Southern California, going to library school in Illinois, and starting my career in New Mexico.
