Abstract


This study investigated the influence of performance appraisal on job performance of library employees in selected University library and information centers in South-West Nigeria. The survey research design was used for the study. Study population consisted of 133 library personnel in four university libraries. Sampling was purposive and enumerative as all members of the population were used for the study. Data collected were analyzed using frequency and percentage counts. Findings revealed that library personnel perceived performance appraisal as the routine evaluation of an employees' output; as a management tool aimed at improving the performance of employees; as a technique for determining staff compensation but not a management tool for strengthening superior - subordinate relationship. The study also revealed that performance appraisal could influence job performance as it improves and motivates personnel to work harder. Based on these findings, some recommendations like finding suitable appraisal scheme that will best suit the employees of the library in performing; giving a regular feedback to the employees after an evaluation; and gearing staff performance exercise towards staff productivity and performance were made.

Author Keywords: Performance Appraisal, Job Performance, Library Employees, Libraries and Information Centers, South-west Nigeria Universities.
