Abstract

The study investigated remuneration and its relationship with librarianship as a career choice. The survey design was used for the study. The hypothesis was tested using the Pearson Product Moment Correlation (PPMC) statistical technique and the relationship was established to be significant at 0.05 level of significance. Remuneration had a relatively low positive correlation (0.32) between remuneration and librarianship as a career choice. The study concluded that remuneration, though positively related, is not a strong determinant of Librarianship as choice of career. The study therefore recommended among other things that outside salaries, government should provide fringe benefits to librarians in academic institutions to enhance satisfactory performance thereby motivating others to join the library profession.
