The population of the study included all professional librarians within the University of Ghana Library System (UGLS). The study used a well-structured questionnaire containing 12 items questions designed to elicit information on perceptions of preferred leadership qualities in academic library.

They prefer leadership that is innovative, inspiring, receptive to ideas, forward looking with a sense of direction and well-defined orientation towards the future of the library, as well as enhance their promotion and career progression.
