Title: Job characteristics, motivation and job satisfaction of academic catalogers: A diagnostic approach
Abstract: This study assesses the job characteristics of catalog librarians working in the automated environment of the academic libraries in the nine state universities in Florida. These libraries were selected because the cataloging function of each was automated at approximately the same time in 1986. A total population of fifty catalogers was identified, of whom forty-eight participated. Data were collected from each on nineteen variables relating to job content and job context through the use of the Job Diagnostic Survey (JDS) questionnaire. Five of these variables are combined to form a composite index known as the Motivation Potential Score (MPS) for a particular job. A series of descriptive statistics (means, medians, and standard deviations) were used to analyze the data. National norms have been developed for eighteen of the nineteen variables of the JDS for government organizations and for professional jobs. The means for the eighteen variables for the catalog librarians were then compared with the national norms by use of the z and t tests at the.05 level of significance.
