 The study was carried out to investigate Job Satisfaction as a Correlate of Organisational Commitment of Librarians in Universities in South – South, Nigeria. The aim of the study was to determine the relationship between job satisfaction and organisational commitment of librarians. The study focused on six dimensions of job satisfaction: nature of work, salary/ fringe benefits, promotional opportunities, supervision, interpersonal relations and physical work environment as measures of librarians’ level of satisfaction. Eight research questions and seven hypotheses (posited in null form and tested at 0.05 level of significance) were formulated to guide the study. The study adopted correlational survey design. The population of the study consisted of 271 professional librarians in the six states that make up the South-South geo-political zone of Nigeria. The entire 271 librarians constituted the study sample as the size was considered quite manageable; therefore, there was no sampling. Two complementary sets of questionnaire tagged “Librarians Job Satisfaction Questionnaire” and “Librarians’ Organisational Commitment Questionnaire” were used as instruments for data collection. The instrument was validated by three experts. The instrument was trial-tested for reliability on 20 librarians. Scores obtained were calculated using Cronbach Alpha method, yielding overall reliability coefficient value of 0.85 percent. In all, 226 usable copies of questionnaire were returned out of a total of 271 distributed, yielding a response rate of 83.4 percent. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer research questions 1 and 2; Person’s–Product Moment Correlation statistics was used to answer research question 3, 4,5,6,7 and 8; while regression statistics was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The findings of the study indicate that: librarians in the study area are satisfied with their job and aspects of their job; that librarians exhibit very affective commitment; high normative commitment; and low continuance commitment; that there is a significant relationship between job satisfaction and organisational commitment of librarians. The implications of the findings of the study were highlighted. Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended that management of Nigerian University libraries should improve the level of librarians’ job satisfaction so as to ensure greater commitment, higher retention and utilisation of available professionals.
