This paper identifies recognizing opportunity and the outcomes measured as innovative behavior practiced in academic libraries. By using a literature review, purposive sampling, multiple case studies and interviews it was discovered that the most relevant antecedents of recognizing opportunities for this study are prior knowledge and experience, self-awareness and social network. These antecedents influence academic librarians’ innovative behavior which was evaluated based on idea generation, idea championing and idea application. This paper explores recognizing opportunity and innovative behavior in Malaysian higher education sector.
