Managerial skills of theological librarians in theological schools of a Baptist convention in Myanmar
This study deals with discovering the managerial skills of the theological librarians, specifically the study aimed to: describe the profile of theological librarians, describe the librarian’s managerial skills, determine if there is relationship between age, civil status, length of service, educational attainment, and training sessions attended and librarian managerial skills in terms of conceptual, technical, human relations skills. This is a descriptive-relational study which employed a one-shot survey design. Result revealed that more than half of the respondents were 37 years old and below, single, working in the library for five years and below, attended at least two trainings, and most of them were graduate degree holders. Generally, librarians have a “moderate” level of conceptual and technical skills, and “high” level of human relations skills. Older librarians have better conceptual and technical skills compared to the younger ones but both age groups have high human relations skills. Likewise, single librarians have better conceptual and technical skills compared to married librarians; however, both groups could display good human relations skills. Librarians who served for longer have better conceptual and technical skills compared to those with less service experience but both groups have better human relations skills. Respondents with higher degrees exhibited better conceptual, technical and human relations skills in management compared to those who obtained lower academic degrees. Number of trainings attended has nothing to do with the development of managerial skills.
