Working condition being implemented in various academic libraries could disrupt or enhance effective provision of information services by the librarians. This research investigated two indices of working condition as determinant factors on job performance of librarians in academic libraries in south east geo political zone of Nigeria. A total of 261 librarians were used for this study. The t-test statistical technique was used to test the two null hypotheses and all formulated at 0.05 level significant. The findings showed that the job security and disciplinary measures had no significant effect on job performance of librarians at (t-test = 0.7) and (t-test = 0.4) respectively. The general conclusion of this work is that these indices do not affect the performance of librarians in their work rather it can sometimes possibly trigger off infraction if not well handled, which can automatically affect the general productivity of such libraries. The study recommended that the management should dissuade libraries from placing much reliance on their job security to engender enhanced productivity rather they should seek alternative ways to motivate staff. Caution should also be taken when executing disciplinary measures on staff so that it will not turn out to trigger infraction which will undermine job performance of workers.
Key words: Job security, disciplinary measure, job performance, librarians, academic libraries.
