Abstract: This paper presents the results of the survey that was conducted in 2015 with the objective of studying various facets of job satisfaction and determining the level of job satisfaction in the LIS professionals working in major health science libraries of Delhi. A structured questionnaire was developed to collect the data and 57 professionals from 14 different medical libraries responded to it. Likert scale was used to assess respondents on satisfaction with various facets of job satisfaction viz pay, promotion, interpersonal relationships, nature of work, reward and recognition, job autonomy, job security, management, social prestige, working conditions, job stress, fringe benefits, opportunities for growth, training facilities and ICT impact. The analysis of the data shows that out of the 15 facets studied, professionals are least satisfied with their pay and promotion (scores 2.5 and 2.6 respectively) while they are most satisfied with the ‘ICT’ aspect of their job (score 3.8), followed by working conditions (3.7), interpersonal relationships (3.7), social prestige (3.7) and job security (3.6). Suggestions to improve the same have been mentioned. This study can be deemed as significant to the library managers, policy makers and human resource management.
