Abstract

Abstract

This study investigates the effects of self-concept, work-family conflict, job satisfaction and job stress on job performance of library personnel in federal colleges of education in Nigeria. The study adopted a survey research design of a correlational type. Total enumeration method was used to cover all the 195 library personnel. A questionnaire tagged Self-concept, Work-family conflict, Job satisfaction, Job stress and Job performance of Library personnel Scale (SWJJJLS) was used as instrument to collect data. Five research questions and two hypotheses tested at 0.05 level of significance were postulated for the study. Multiple regression and correlational analyses were used in analyzing the data collected. The findings revealed that the joint effect of independent variables (self-concept, work-family conflict, job satisfaction and job stress) on job performance of library personnel was significant (F (4,168) = 2.920; R = .255, R2 = .065, Adj. R2 = 0.403; P < .05). The relative effect of self-concept, work-family conflict, job satisfaction and job stress on job performance of library personnel was found to be significant (self-concept β = .253, P <.05; work-family conflict β = -.194, P <.05; job satisfaction β = .222, P <.05; and job stress β = .080, P <.05). It is therefore suggested that government as well as library managers should give much consideration to the psychological domains of library personnel in federal colleges of education in Nigeria.
