Dan Kearns, Anne Floyd and Peter Smith
Abstract Discusses the findings of a study of 30 small college libraries (TAFE Qld), exploring the development of autonomous group design in relation to the level of job satisfaction, well-being and roles within the library. The study was
designed to identify the effects of team autonomy, satisfaction and psychological well-being of team members, using role theory approach. It found no significant correlation between team members, using role theory approach. It found no significant
correlation between team autonomy, satisfaction or well-being, but the high level of role insufficiency (dissatisfaction with use of one's skills, talents and opportunities for career development) provides a focus for discussion.
