Stress management for academic librarians in Nigeria

E.O. Nwafor-Orizu


This article aims to awaken academic librarians to the stress management techniques needful in escaping stress emanating from current trends in academic librarianship. This paper is based on literature review, documentary analyses, commentary and casual observation of academic librarians in Nigeria. Academic Librarians are stressed by their direct job profile, enormous career progression demands and domestic imperatives. Unless they are timely equipped with the basics of stress management, they will continue to fall victims of stress-induced-illnesses and even death. The article alerts academic librarians in Nigeria of the stressors in their career and outlines some stress remedies that may be of interest to them.
