The study aims to investigate the â€œstress lifeâ€ of library personnel and identify the underlying factors. It is hoped that the results will bring awareness to DLSU library personnel about their stress levels and the common work-related stressors, allowing them to take the necessary measures or activities to alleviate or eliminate stress before it takes a toll on their work and health. Library administrators can also use the results in identifying factors or situations that tend to cause stress at work, which may then serve as their basis for assigning or reassigning duties and tasks to librarians. It is important to note, however, that the study investigated only work-related factors of stress. An online survey was conducted for two weeks to obtain the needed data. Frequency, mean, and regression analysis were employed to analyze the data gathered. Findings from the survey suggest that stress is not isolated in any group of personnel and the stress level among the personnel is manageable. The regression analysis yielded a nonsignificant relationship between stress level and demographic profile. Other ways of investigating stress factors at work are recommended.
