In the Spring of 2018, researchers Wood, Guimaraes, and Holm administered the highly validated and reliable Copenhagen Burnout Inventory (CBI) work-related sub-scale to 1628 academic librarians employed within the United States. Burnout is most commonly defined as "a state of mental exhaustion resulting from chronic stress in the working situation" (Brenninkmeijer and Van Yperen, 2003, p. i16). The adverse effects of this condition are linked to mental and physical disorders of the individual, and economic costs to an organization by way of reduced productivity, increased absenteeism, and turnover.
