Abstract

Today’s digital library services demand workers with the person organization fit (a match between individual values and the organizational culture) and person-job fit (the match between a person’s knowledge, skills and abilities and the requirements of the specific job). Many authorities in the field have revealed good evidence of relationship among person-organization fit and individual outcome variables such as employee’s job satisfaction, intent to quit the organization and willingness to recommend the organization as a good place to work. In order words, employees who do not exhibit high person-organization fit could bring poor performance, organizational incompatibility and job turnover to a work place which in turn could reduce organizational effectiveness. This paper looks at person-organization fit and person job fit and what authorities said about them as regards their relationship with the individuals outcome variables and organizational effectiveness. It also discussed the concept of organizational culture and individual values. It equally looks at the job of the librarians in the digital environment and employing P-O fit in worker selection and recruitment of librarians in this digital environment.
