Authors(3) :-Pushpalatha K, Poornima G. Rao, T. Y. Mallaiah

It is necessary to understand the socio-economic and personal elements, which influence an employee's behaviour and opinion. Libraries need professionally qualified librarians to plan, direct and supervise various library operations where professional knowledge is important. The number of such professionals required in each library depends on the tasks to be performed. The present study has concentrated only on the professionals and semi-professionals and did not cover the non-professionals and management people. This paper reports on the respondent's views and perceptions on common pitfalls of performance appraisal, its concerns and issues and also common rating errors influencing job satisfaction).
