In routine conversation and publications of general interest, the term stress is usually referred to the negative sense of ‘distress’. Stress is becoming an increasingly global phenomenon affecting all countries, all professions and all categories of workers, families and society in general. With increasing complexity in our lifestyle, the level of stress has been rising at a phenomenal rate. The factors that contribute to stress not only differ between cultures, but also within a culture itself; from sophisticated industrial society to calm working environment of a library; and from upper class to lower class within the same society. In many professions, stress is intrinsic to the job itself, where competing demands, challenges and pressures come with the job and thus cannot be avoided. In this book addressed six attributions of job related stress these are: i) Stressors in the physical environment or organizational climate ii) Organizational role stress iii) Stressors associated with technological changes iv) Stress among library professionals v) Job burnout v) Locus of control vi) Job satisfaction. It is expected that the book has immense potentiality to trace the causes of stress among the library professional and to set up a stress free job atmosphere for the benefit of the library services to the society as a whole.
