Title: An assessment of burnout in academic librarians in America using the Maslach Burnout Inventory (the MBI)
Abstract: This study assessed the theoretical foundation and the implementation of the Maslach Burnout Inventory (the MBI) as an instrument for measuring burnout among librarians in college and university libraries in the United States. The sample consisted of 600 college and university librarians who were employed in academic libraries in three major work groups--public services, technical services, and library administration. The constructs, or dimensions, that comprised the MBI were conceptualized to measure burnout in groups as a continuous variable that ranged from low to moderate to high degrees of experienced feelings. The general coefficients that comprised the three constructs of the MBI were emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal accomplishment. The MBI provided substantive data on burnout incidents from this sample of college and university librarians along the emotional exhaustion and depersonalization constructs but not for the personal accomplishment construct.
