Considers the advantages and limitations of job sharing, with particular reference to librarians. Stresses the importance of communication and equitable division of work and includes two case studies. Concludes that job sharing makes good sense in a female‐dominated profession but that library managers need to be more aware of the job‐sharing option and should create specific job‐sharing contracts. Prospective job‐sharers need encouragement and can learn from the experiences of others in similar working environments.
