The Application of Job Redesign Concepts to the Management of Academic Research Libraries.
Martell, Charles
Although the academic research library is service oriented and exists in a diverse, dynamic environment, the jobs within the system tend to be highly structured and mechanistic, more suitable for a production oriented organization. This paper discusses the concept of job dimensions in general and in relation to the academic research library, maladaptation of the library to its environment, and the implementation of job redesign techniques with potential benefits in terms of effectiveness of library operations, the satisfaction of employees, and the success with which it can recognize and adapt to significant shifts in its relevant task environment. A brief description of the process of implementing redesign in a library is presented. Also included are definitions of several terms as used in this report and a bibliography. (MBR)
