Title: The Role of Libraries in the Developing Societies
Authors: Asamoah–Hassan, Helena R.
Issue Date: Jun-1987
Publisher: ABU Zaria
Abstract: The backgrounds and existing roles of the various types of libraries in the country are given. Factors militating against their effective performances are stated. The public library is singled out as the main library catering for the general society. Its present day roles arc stated. Suggested roles in line with the current desires of librarianship to process information and disseminate properly for effective use are made. Conclusions are drawn to the effect that this new trend of service to the society, through information centres, to cater for the majority of the members of the society, who live in the rural areas, is an effective means of developing the society.
