The population of the study comprised of 1,163 personnel from public and private university libraries in South – West, Nigeria, out of which 643 personnel were sampled using multistage sampling technique. The instrument used for data collection was questionnaire. A total of six hundred and forty three (643) copies of the questionnaire were administered, out of which five hundred and forty one (541) copies representing 84.1% were retrieved and analysed. Data collected were presented and analysed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. Results indicated that level of job satisfaction was high in term of nature of work (Mean = 3.87), promotion opportunities (Mean = 3.30), Supervision (Mean = 3.14) and communication flow (Mean = 3.45). Also, the results revealed that job satisfaction significantly influenced personnel commitment in university libraries (p≤0.05).
