Job Satisfaction of Academic Librarians: A Review of Literature.
Mirfakhrai, Mohammad H.
This literature review on job satisfaction of academic librarians is divided into two sections. The first section deals with the conceptual framework which includes two theoretical approaches to job satisfaction. These theories include Maslow's Needs Hierarchy Theory and Herzberg's Two-Factor (Motivation/Hygiene) Theory. Criticisms of these theories are also discussed. These content theories attempted to determine factors contributing to the satisfaction/dissatisfaction of an individual. Literature on job satisfaction among university faculty and school teachers is also reviewed, since this literature is assumed to be analogous because of the identical job characteristics of faculty and teaching responsibilities. The second section reviews available literature regarding job satisfaction in general, and specifically factors related to job satisfaction of academic librarians. In addition, demographic variables and their relation to job satisfaction, particularly academic librarians is reviewed. A five-page reference list is included. (ABL)
