INFLUENCE OF UNIVERSITY LIBRARIANS’ LEADERSHIP STYLES ON THE JOB PERFORMANCE OF PROFESSIONAL LIBRARIANS IN NORTH CENTRAL ZONE OF NIGERIA

ABSTRACT

 The major purpose of this study was to determine the influence of University librarians’ leadership styles on the job performance of professional librarians in university libraries in North Central Zone of Nigeria. In carrying out this study, 5 research questions were posed and 4 null hypotheses was formulated and tested. The entire population which consisted of all the 78 professional librarians and all the 9 university librarians in the 9 (4 federal and 5 state) university libraries in North Central Zone of Nigeria were used because of the smallness of the population size. Two sets of instrument which include: University Librarians’ Leadership Styles Questionnaire (ULLSQ) and Job Performance of Professional Librarians Questionnaire (JPPLQ) were used. The research questions were answered using mean. The Hypotheses was tested at 0.05 level of significance using Multiple Regression Analysis. The major findings of the study showed that: The university librarians in North Central Zone of Nigeria adopted more of democratic leadership style. This is followed by the bureaucratic leadership style less laissez-faire leadership style and far less autocratic leadership style. University librarians’ leadership styles do not significantly influence the job performance of professional librarians. Experience of the university librarians do not significantly influence the job performance of professional librarians. Ownership of university significantly influenced job performance of professional librarians with Federal university professional librarians performing better than their State counterpart. The level of job performance of professional librarians was low. The joint influence of leadership styles, experience and ownership on performance of the professional librarians was significant. Based on the above findings, it was recommended that university librarians should be supervised and closely monitored by the university authorities to ensure that the autocratic and laissez-faire ones among them are checked. That university authorities should through seminars and workshops encourage the usage of democratic leadership style in the administration of university libraries. Appointment of university librarians should not be on the basis of their experience alone but on the basis of their attainment of high academic qualifications. That State Government owned universities should endeavour to provide better conditions of service for their professional librarians.
