Sexual harassment in libraries exists, but it has not been comprehensively studied. In the wake of the #MeToo movement and shared anecdotal experiences, library staff members at the University of California, San Francisco were empowered to address this issue in our library. This paper will present the results of our survey of sexual harassment experiences of our staff and, in an effort to encourage other academic library workers to spearhead similar efforts in their own environments, will document our process of developing anti-sexual harassment efforts in our library.
