Abstract

The study investigates the management of Library personnel in the university libraries in Nigeria to determine the prevalent offences committed by library staff, sanctions imposed, and the effects of the offences on the staff. A total of 150 copies of a questionnaire were sent to all categories of library staff in the three University Libraries in Nigeria. Only 100 members of staff in the libraries completed and returned their questionnaires that were used for the study. Result shows that lateness to work, absence from work without permission and sleeping on duty are the dominant offences committed by library staff for which they were sanctioned. Besides, transportation, personal problems and inadequate finance were the major reasons why the offences were committed, while query, warning and transfer to another duty post were the common sanctions imposed. Result also shows that the sanctions had both positive and negative effects on the respondents. Recommendations that can enhance the management of library staff in the university libraries in Nigeria are provided.
