Job satisfaction is one of the most important factors for establishing a healthy structure and environment in an organization. Job satisfaction among employees has been a significant issue for researchers throughout the world. In Pakistan, it is an emerging area. The present study aim ed to understand the job satisfaction of LIS professionals through six major factors of job satisfaction, i.e.: Salary, Promotion, Management Policy/Facilities, Working Conditions, Leadership/Supervision and Social Relations. A survey questionnaire (pilot - tested) was used for data collection. Total 90 questionnaires were distributed among LIS professionals in 33 university libraries of the Punjab province (both p ublic & private sectors). The study revealed that LIS professionals working in both public and private sectors’ university libraries were generally satisfied with many aspects of their job s . The professionals from private sector were less satisfied with t heir salary packages, job security, rewards, working environment and leaves, and medical facilities as compare to public sector professionals. It is concluded that university administration of both the sectors need to improve the level of job satisfaction of LIS professionals by providing adequate benefits and facilities. The findings will be helpful for concerned authorities and university and library management in reorganizing job structure and policies for LIS professionals in Pakistan.
