Staff performance is a very crucial aspect of librarianship when it comes to provision of library services in any university library. In this context, the role of library staff of any sort is very paramount in satisfying the information needs of their teeming users. Given the nature of work, the degree of stress and the working hours that the human capital of university library have; studying factors that have an impact on their job attitude becomes a necessity for the library management. Performance of such employees is influenced by Job related attitudes like satisfaction, leadership, work commitment and job involvement. Employee performance is the summation of commitment and involvement towards their organization and its value. An employee with positive attitude is well aware about the dynamics of business, can fine tune to organisational environment, leading to a holistic development in the performance and productivity of the entire organization. Keeping these facets as background, this research paper investigates the impact and factors that lead to better productivity of library staff members. An empirical investigation was done to identify the factors that have a bearing on work attitudes and the survey was carried out in the university library. Statistically the information was tested and validated. P test, F test, correlation and regression showed a significant relationship between the attitudes of library staff and performances. This study suggested some human resource development policies in libraries to creating more positive attitude on the staff.
