Abstract

The population of the study included all librarians working within the University of Ghana Library System (UGLS).  The study used a well structured questionnaire containing 15 items questions designed to elicit information on perceptions of leadership succession planning.  Though librarians at the UGLS understand and appreciate the importance of succession planning, no policy existed on succession planning, as it is not a priority.  The study reveals that perceived leadership style and succession planning have a significant positive relationships on librarians job satisfaction and commitment to service.  The age data collected suggests that succession planning should be an area of concern as large percentage (40%) of the librarians at the UGLS will attain their compulsory retirement age (60 years) within the next five years.

Abstract

Adult education as we know it is the education of grown up men and women mainly for those who could not get any formal education in the early days of their lives, illiterate masses who failed to get education during their school years. According to Bryson "Adult education includes all activities with an educational purpose, carried on by people, in the ordinary business of life, who use only part of their energy to acquire intellectual equipment". Merriam & Brockett (1997) defined ".adult education as activities intentionally designed for the purpose of bringing about learning among those whose age, social roles, or self-perception define them as adults." And Verner defined "Adult Education is the action of an external educational agent in purposefully ordering behavior into planned systematic experiences that can result in learning for those for whom such an activity is supplemental to their primary role in society, and which involves some continuity in an exchange relationship between the agent and the learner so that the educational cess is under constant supervision and direction." Adult education brings a new hope for the illiterate masses who failed to get education during their school years. Adult education programme is the foundation for future brighter society and free India can build up a welfare state which will recognize the potentialities of both individuals’ freedom and social security.
