Abstract

The chapter critically describes and discusses leadership development experiences at the University of Zambia library by looking at the leadership development opportunities that are availed to library staff. It discusses the challenges of leadership development at the institution. A case study approach to make inferences on leadership development was adopted. The chapter contends that leadership development is an important aspect of organizational development in libraries, because it enables an organization to regenerate and carry on with its mission in an orderly and transformative manner. It offers insights of leadership development and organizational transformation in resource-constrained environments.
