Head librarians and stress A quantitative study of work related stress factors in Swedish public libraries (English)
Abstract [en]

This dissertation discusses head librarians in Swedish public libraries and the stress factors which affect them. The aim is to map out potential stress factors which head librarians come across in their day-to-day work. The purpose of the dissertation is to answer the following question: what stress factors affect library managers in Swedish public libraries? The dissertation was conducted through a literature study, informal interviews and a quantitative questionnaire. The results of the quantitative questionnaires show that the factor that produces the highest level of stress is having too many different tasks. Other high stress factors that can be discerned are: deadlines and time pressure; heavy workload; budget and lack of resources; too much information and being interrupted at work. The following significant differences were discerned: women are more stressed than men by too many different tasks; a heavy workload; budget and lack of resources; being interrupted at work. Head librarians who have other tasks than just managerial tasks are significantly more stressed by too many different tasks than the head librarians who only have managerial tasks. Head librarians from the category Big municipality are significantly more stressed by a heavy workload than head librarians from other municipalities. Head librarians in libraries that are organized under a committee with responsibility for Culture are significantly most stressed.
