Because carpal tunnel syndrome is considered significantly prevalent among library workers, this literature review was begun to check the injury’s prevalence, seriousness, and potential remedies. The literature review quickly showed the topic fraught with difficulties in everything from trying to define the syndrome to considering best treatments for those afflicted. Although library literature was sparse, the literature was replete with good information and advice. There is still much confusion surrounding the topic, however, and additional information including medical literature was sought to clarify and amplify some of the major aspects of carpal tunnel syndrome as it relates to library workers.
