The Impact of Faculty Status and Gender on Employee Well-Being in Academic Libraries
Galbraith, Quinn; Fry, Leanna; Garrison, Melissa
College & Research Libraries, v77 n1 p71-86 Jan 2016
This study measures job satisfaction, personal fulfillment, work/life balance, and stress levels of male and female librarians. Researchers surveyed 719 librarians at ARL institutions that either offer faculty status and tenure or offer neither. Females at libraries offering faculty status indicated poor work/life balance and high levels of stress compared to male colleagues and female librarians without faculty status; however, their reported job satisfaction was similar. Possible implications of the results are discussed.
