Stressed out librarians

A new study reports that among librarians, police officers, firefighters, train operators and teachers, librarians are in the most stressful occupation.

"Librarians are the most unhappy with their workplace, often finding their job repetitive and unchallenging," says psychologist Saqib Saddiq, the study's author.

Chief among the complaints was the physical environment in which librarians work, as well as their belief that they weren't utilizing their skills and that they have little control over the direction of their careers.
