Impact of a Computerized Network on the Quality of Work Life in Two College of Advanced Education Libraries in New South Wales




The objective was to gather preliminary data on the impact of a computerized network (CLANN Limited) on the quality of work life of library staff in two college libraries. The expectations of the study were that network membership would affect the level of autonomous decision-making, the organizational structure, and the type and number of cataloguing staff required. Furthermore, the existing organizational climate and the method of implementing the technology were expected to be significant factors in the quality of the work experience. The case study method was selected. Data was gathered by way of semi-structured interviews with staff at all organizational levels of the two libraries, and with the CLANN office staff. The case studies confined the potential of the technology to influence the factors described above. However, the mission of the library and its management philosophy emerged as more significant than the technology.
