Abstract

This study investigated the combined correlational effects of motivation, emotional intelligence and human capital development on the job satisfaction of librarians in Nigerian public universities. A correlational survey research design was adopted. The study population consisted of 1,254 librarians in public university libraries in Nigeria, from which 923 were selected using simple random sampling. The research instrument used was a self-developed questionnaire. A response rate of 67.2% was achieved. Data were analysed using descriptive (percentage, mean, average mean and standard deviation) and inferential (ANOVA) statistics. The study revealed significant relationship among the combined contributions of motivation, emotional intelligence and human capital development on job satisfaction of librarians in public university libraries in Nigeria. It was concluded that contrary to general belief, job satisfaction level of librarians in public university libraries was high. It recommended that university library management should continue to promote values such as improved job satisfaction of its workforce.
