Introduction Numerous contributions have been made in India in which number of countries has drawn attention to the job satisfaction and motivation among LIS faculty members. Job satisfaction is a primary requisite for any successful teaching and learning process. It is a complex phenomenon that involves various personal, institutional and social aspects. The faculty members will be in a position to fulfill the educational objectives and national goals if only they conquer the adequate job satisfaction. A survey has been made for recognizing the job satisfaction among university faculty members. Job satisfaction refers to the impression a person has of his career. There are many contributing factors and causes of job satisfaction that can be categorized as internal aspects (personality traits, feelings and emotions) and external aspects (organizational, social and cultural conditions and characteristics). Definition The term Job Satisfaction is derived from the latin work SATIS and FACERE which means ENOUGH and TO DO respectively. Related Work Various contributions have been made and implemented in literature regarding job satisfaction. The term was brought to limelight by Hoppock [1] who reviewed 32 studies on job satisfaction conducted prior to 1933 and observed that job satisfaction is a combination of psychological, physiological and environmental circumstances that cause a person to say, "I am satisfied with my job". Such a description indicates the variety of variables that influence job satisfaction but tell us nothing about its nature. Locke [2,3] defined job satisfaction as "a pleasurable or positive emotional state resulting from the appraisal of one's job or job experiences". In simple terms, job satisfaction explains what makes people want to come to work. What makes them happy about their job or not to quit their job? Job satisfaction shows employees emotional state of mind that reflects effective reaction to the job and work conditions [4]. Insufficiency of teaching materials like appropriate books for all subjects that are being taught has been a major challenge facing teachers in both rural and urban areas [5-6]. Objectives The following objectives are progressed for the purpose of the present study To know the overall strength of LIS faculty members in Annamalai University Vijayakumar K Dec Vol.2 Issue

They are personally requested to fill up the questionnaire at their earliest convenience in order to help the investigator to collect the same during his/her next visit. The investigator has to make second, third and fourth visits to collect the filled in questionnaires. During these visits, the investigator could collect the questionnaires from only 26 out of 40 faculty members among whom the questionnaires were distributed. This constitutes 65% of the total response. While selecting samples satisfaction method has been adopted with a view to the respondents of different categories. Data Analysis and Interpretation Table 1 shows that the majority of the Male LIS faculty members leads by 69% and 31% were occupied by the female LIS faculty members. From the experimental results it is observed that the male respondents occupies the highest percentage compared to female respondents. Table 1: Sex- wise distribution of respondents S.

Only two faculty members of 7.69% have chosen their career to fulfill the desire for economic dependence. For the above table it is clearly defined that majority of the members have chosen their career to fulfill the basic minimum needs of their life [7]. Suggestions Dedicated involvement in academic activities and it should be in competitive nature. More autonomy should be given to the teaching departments. Regular one week or 15 days training programmes on latest technological facilities must be made available to faculty members at the computer lab should developed with higher machine facilities. Government should concentrate more on interuniversity faculty exchange programmes. It should implement uniform syllabus in all Universities and the semester system should be removed. Proper motivation, good supervisor, incentives, promotional opportunities to update the latest developments with the help of orientations, training, workshop programmes and seminar/conferences should be organised frequently in every academic year.

The Government ensure reasonable salary/ incentives, proper promotional opportunities from either side.
