520 3 |a This study investigated how white identity influences the ways in which youth services librarians serving a diverse young adult population in urban areas make meaning of race, both their own and their patrons. Fifteen interviews were conducted, followed by both researcher and professional transcription, and memo-ing to ensure validity. Phenomenological coding techniques were used to develop a structure for the ways in which youth services librarians make meaning of race in their professional life. Six major themes are identified, examined, and placed in the broader context of whiteness studies research. This work is illustrated by the narrative data collected from the fifteen librarians interviewed.
