Results: The study showed that the highest frequencies of job-burnout dimensions among librarians were from the high level of emotional-exhaustion and depersonalization and low level of personal-performance and involvement. Conclusion: Analysis of data concluded that the university librarians believe, the low level of wages and benefits, the low status of librarians’ profession in the society, the deficiency of promotion and occupation advancement, and incorrect assessment of the librarians' job performance, has the most influence on the job-burnout among librarians.
