I Love Librarianship
Kuzyk, Raya
Library Journal, v133 n4 p38-43 Mar 2008
Why choose librarianship as a career? Seventeen percent of public librarians responding to this question in LJ's Job Satisfaction Survey began their answers with the words "I love...." And not for nothing: 70% reported being either "very satisfied" or "satisfied" with their jobs vs. the 31% who said they were "somewhat satisfied" or "not satisfied at all." Respondents with the greatest number of years in the field tended to express the highest levels of satisfaction, and, most promising for the future of the profession, 87% of all public library respondents said they would recommend it as a career to someone just entering college. Nonetheless, problems driving down satisfaction remain.
