Summary

The question which this paper poses for resolution is: What are the relationships (if any) existing between job satisfaction, on the one hand, and occupation, on the other? The answer to this query is significant for two reasons: (1) the existence of relationships raises fundamental issues for consideration and (2) if no relationships exist; it is futile to continue down this road of inquiry. The techniques used in the study to assess employee satisfactions in a large, modern university library consisted of a series of formal and informal presentations followed by a Job Descriptive Index (JDI) questionnaire. The employees were requested to answer the JDI on a confidential basis. The occupational categories (professional library assistant, professional, administrator, clerical) constitute the stratification principle upon which the data were structured. It was found that, overall, the professional library assistant enjoys her work most. Next, in overall satisfaction, is the professional librarian. The clerical employee enjoys her work least. Possible reasons for these findings are discussed. (Related studies are: LI003816 through 003818 and LI003820 and 003821.) (Author/NH)
