Abstract: Library assistants, made up of Para-professionals (Senior Staff) and junior staff, constitute over 50% of the total workforce of the KNUST Library. The contributions of these assistants to the efficient and effective running of the University Library System is of primary importance. This study aims at finding out how best to motivate these library assistants of the KNUST Library with a view to enhancing their performances and productivity. An analysis of answers to questions pertaining to the sex, age, working experience, educational qualifications, job satisfaction, prospects for promotion, performances on the job, relationships, communication and discipline is made. Factors impeding higher motivation of the assistants are also identified. Suggestions for higher motivation are finally made to enhance staff performance and service delivery at the KNUST Library.
