Summary

Usable data relating to six elements of job satisfaction: work, supervision, people, pay, promotion, and total satisfaction, were collected from 190 of a total sample of 310 librarians, chosen by stratified random sampling techniques from library association membership lists. The librarians, both male and female, represented three types of libraries: public, college/university, and special. One purpose of the research was to determine the differences in job satisfaction between the three types of libraries. Additional questions concerned the variations in satisfaction, if any, attributable to sex and/or to size of the library staff and how librarians' scores compared with population norms on two scales of the data collection instrument, the Job Descriptive Index (JDI). JDI scores were tested by means of t-tests and analysis of variance. The conclusions drawn were that: (1) Job satisfaction is partially a function of type of library. (2) Special librarians evidence less job satisfaction due to restricted promotional opportunities and greater work stress. (3) Women are generally happier as librarians than men. (4) Librarians are generally more satisfied than other workers. (5) Staff size has little or no effect on job satisfaction. (Author/SL)
