Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this article is to resolve my aversion to the concept of teamwork.

Design/methodology/approach

Opinion.

Findings

There is a difference in how I perceive different groups referred to as teams, and in how I think each of those would function in a library setting.

Originality/value

In a literature search about disliking teamwork or the word team, I found little to address my reaction to the concept, either in libraries or in the greater work world. The articles or editorials I did find had more to do with particular teambuilding exercises.
