To take maximum advantage of computers without compromising the health of library staffs and users, it is important that the computer workstation be adapted to the needs of the users. While the topic of occupational safety and health is a major industry concern, it is not commonplace in libraries. Therefore, this study is to apply the ergonomic principles to library computer workstations and suggest the ergonomic models for computer table and chair, monitor and keyboard placement, posture and motion. lighting, and other environments.
