Examining Job Satisfaction Levels of Student Assistant Employees of Akron Summit County Public Libraries: A Survey.
McNeal, Elaine N.
This paper presents survey research on the job satisfaction of student library employees in the Akron Summit County (Ohio) Public Library system. Approximately 100 (50% return) student employees were questioned about several dimensions of their employment experience including respondent gender, length of employment, previous job experience, hours worked per week, location of employment, level of school attained, type of work done on the library's automated systems, general duties performed, favored duties, level of satisfaction, and interest in a career in library science. Students appeared to be fairly happy in their positions, though for the most part these positions were not seen as leading to a career in library science. The level of student satisfaction was related to management style and attitude of their immediate supervisors and of the other full time staff with whom they worked. Five figures and tables present response data. The cover letters to supervisors and student assistants and the survey are appended. (Contains 15 references.) (Author/AEF)
