Abstract
Management competencies are essential components that librarians should possess. These are necessary tools in achieving the strategic goals of the library. The main gist of this study is to determine the level of management competencies of librarians as basis for a proposed intervention program. Through quantitative non-experimental descriptive-inferential research design, the data were collected from 118 librarians and were analyzed by the use of mean, Anova and t-Test. The data revealed that librarians have high level of management competencies. Correspondingly, there is no significant difference based on age and sex, but educational background and length of service differ significantly on the management competencies of librarians. A proposed intervention program for enhancing the management competencies of librarians was designed on the basis of the findings.
