ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to develop a job-stress scale for librarians who work in university libraries. The study was first conducted by analyzing existing representative job-stress scales that are used domestically and internationally. To understand the characteristic of particular job stress that academic librarians have, the in-depth interview among qualitative research methods was selected, and 15 librarians who work at a 4-year system university libraries participated in this study. Based on the results of the questionnaire survey, the reliability and validity were verified. To analyze the validity, exploratory factor analysis was carried out. To extract factors, principal component analysis was used. To extract factors, principal component analysis was used. For the rotation method, a varimax rotation was applied. A tertiary measurement tool with a total of 46 questions for 11 factors was developed after removing measurement questions that were rejected as a result of the analysis. As a result of factor analysis on the tertiary measurement tool, 11 factors were extracted. Those 11 factors include ‘peer relation conflict factor(factor 1)’, ‘superior-subordinate relation conflict factor (factor 2)’, ‘work compensation evaluation factor(factor 3)’, ‘emotional labor factor(factor 4)’, ‘physical environmental factor(factor 5)’, ‘employment stability(factor 6)’, ‘job demand factor(psychological) (factor 7)’, ‘decision-making and responsibility factor(factor 8)’, ‘work complexity factor(factor 9)’, ‘work boundary conflict factor(factor 10)’, and ‘job demand factor(physical)(factor 11)’.
