DEMOGRAPHIC VARIABLES AS PREDICTORS OF JOB PERFORMANCE OF LIBRARIANS IN FEDERAL UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES IN SOUTH EAST NIGERIA

Abstract 

This study is an attempt to use the demographic or personal variables to determine the job performance of librarians in university libraries in South East Nigeria. In carrying out this study, five research questions were used in addition to two hypotheses that were tested at 0.05 levels of significance. The study was based on correlational research design. The population of the study consisted of 115 Librarians working in five federal university libraries in South East Nigeria. There was no sampling as the population was not large enough to warrant sampling. The instruments for data collection were questionnaire titled “Demographic Variables for Job Performance Questionnaire (DVJPQ) and structured interview. The questionnaire items were adapted from Koopman’s indicators of task and contextual performance. The instrument was face validated by experts in the field of library and information science. A total of 115 copies of the questionnaire were distributed whereas only the Divisional/Sectional Heads were interviewed. A total of 50 Divisional/Sectional Heads were interviewed. Data collected using questionnaire were analyzed using frequency distributions and percentages, Mean (X), Standard Deviation (SD) and Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Coefficient (r) while ANOVA and Multiple Regression were used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 probability level. This analysis was done using Statistical Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS). The interview data were analyzed thematically by identifying common themes or categories in the responses of the supervisors and organizing those categories using percentages. The results of the study showed that the demographic profiles of librarians included but not limited to age, gender, education, job position, work experience and marital status. Of all these demographic factors, only age, education, job position and work experience were found to be significant predictors of librarians’ task-based and contextual performance. The results also revealed that these predictors contributed as much as 56% and 55% of the changes in the task and contextual performance of librarians. Finally, the results of the study revealed that both the task and contextual performance of the librarians were high due largely to the variations in their individual characteristics. Based on these findings, it was recommended that university libraries in South East Nigeria should strive to recruit qualified staff, keep an up-to-date manpower inventory, ensure that each staff is treated distinctively, carryout staff appraisal from time to time and ensure that librarians are properly motivated.
