A Study of the Relationship Between Faculty Status and Job Satisfaction Among Academic Law Librarians

by Braun, Matthew E.

Abstract (Summary)
The paper addresses the relationship between faculty status and job satisfaction among academic law librarians in the United States. A review of relevant refereed literature in both academic librarianship generally and law librarianship specifically is provided as background. The paper culminates with the results and analysis of a twenty-item survey sent electronically by the author to academic law librarians across the country gauging their current faculty status and aspects of their job satisfaction. The results support the hypothesis posed in the paper: that faculty status does relate favorably with and makes a difference in job satisfaction among academic law librarians.
