Title: The vocational interests and job perceptions of chief information officers and directors of libraries according to Holland's vocational theory

Abstract: This study used Holland's vocational theory to investigate the vocational interests and job perceptions of the entire population of chief information officers (CIOs) of US research universities, and the entire population of directors of libraries who work at US research universities that have chief information officers. The research was expected to fulfill two purposes: (1) to examine the vocational interests and job views of CIOs and directors of libraries in terms of Holland's theory, and (2) to determine the level of similarity between the vocational interests and job views of CIOs and directors of libraries in terms of Holland's theory.

The Self-Directed Search Form CP was used to assess their respective vocational interests. The vocational interests of directors of libraries were determined to be Enterprising, Social and Investigative, and the vocational interests of CIOs were determined to be Investigative, Enterprising and Realistic.

The Position Classification Inventory was used to assess their respective views of their jobs. The job views of CIOs were determined to be Enterprising, Investigative and Social, and the job views of directors of libraries were determined to be Enterprising, Social and Artistic.

The Iachan Index was used to measure levels of congruence between CIOs' and directors of libraries' vocational interests and job views. The congruence score between CIOs' and directors of libraries' views of their jobs indicates that their job views were a "reasonably close match." The congruence score between CIOs' and directors of libraries' views of their jobs indicates that their job views were a "reasonably close match." The congruence score between CIO's and directors of libraries' vocational interests indicates that their vocational interests were a "not close match." The congruence score between chief information officers' vocational interests and their views of their jobs indicates that there was a "reasonably close match." The congruence score between directors of libraries' vocational interests and their views of their jobs indicates that there was a "very close match."

Pearson tests were run to assess relationships between vocational interests and job views within each group. T-tests were run to assess differences in vocational interests between the groups, and differences in job views between them. Results from these analyses indicated salient characteristics of similarity between CIOs and directors of libraries.
