Abstract
In the Spring of 2018 the authors administered the highly validated and reliable Copenhagen Burnout Inventory (CBI) work-related sub-scale to 1628 academic librarians employed within the United States. Academic librarians reported a total work-related burnout score of 49.6. Overall, female participants who were 35-44 years of age reported the highest levels of work-related burnout with males and older individuals reporting the lowest levels of work-related burnout. This study also revealed some interesting information about non-binary/third-gender librarians that suggests further research is warranted.
