Abstract
Technology is a mobile and integral part of many work places, and computers and other
information and communication technology have made many users’ work life easier, but
technology can also contribute to problems in the cognitive work environment and, over time,
create technostress. Much previous research on technostress has focused on the use of digital
technology and its effects, measured by questionnaires. This paper applies a distributed
cognition perspective to human–technology interaction, investigated through Limesurvey to
examine technostress, its effects and measures taken to avoid it among librarians at university
libraries in Delhi. About 200 library professionals participated in the study. Data was
subjected to correlation and regression analysis analysed through Quickcals (Graphpad
software. Analysis reveals high that there exists a high level of technostress among the library
professionals engaged in Delhi libraries. Moreover, no any effective measures have been
undertaken to combat the phenomena.
