Title: Librarians at work: Are we as satisfied as other American workers?
Author: van Reenen, Johann

Job satisfaction

Abstract: For almost three decades, libraries have experienced rapid change, first in behind-the-scenes technical processes, then gradually everywhere. This allowed enhanced services to our customers and new opportunities for library workers. Did it make us happier workers, or at least as happy as the general American worker? Many job satisfaction surveys has been reported and analyzed in the library literature. These were reviewed for overall satisfaction indicators. Permission was obtained from Inc./Gallup to administer six of their 34 questions verbatim to library groups. The results are described in this article.
