Abstract

Stress and burnout among librarians and library employees has been the focus of a number of studies over the years. Results have varied considerably, especially regarding the incidence of burnout. New developments in understanding about job engagement shed light on employees' response to stress, the dynamics of burnout and a range of inner health. This paper will describe a study of the incidence of burnout and job engagement among a sample of business librarians. Implications for library employers will also be addressed.
