Final year undergraduate students of the Department of Library and Information Science, Delta State University, Abraka, Nigeria were surveyed and asked to list five qualities they would like their lecturers to possess. The responses were analyzed using frequency counts and percentage. Results reveal that students would like their lecturers to be knowledgeable in the courses they are teaching, to be punctual, to be able to impart knowledge, to assess students objectively and possess ICT knowledge and skills. Lecturers should strive to have deep knowledge of the courses they are teaching and also employ relevant methods to deliver lectures. A code of conduct should be developed by relevant LIS authorities to guide lecturers.
