Librarians’ Registration Council of Nigeria (LRCN) yesterday inducted 412 new librarians and revealed the revised curriculum for Library and Information Science (LIS).

Council’s Registrar, Professor Michael Afolabi said during the 4th conference and 8th induction ceremony in Abuja that a total of 412 professionals took oath as new librarians and “this will bring the total number of certified librarians in Nigeria to 5,437.”

He said most organizations were implementing the council’s policy on recruitment and promotion of only qualified librarians and that LIS graduates not certified won’t get jobs.

He said the revised LIS curriculum has been published and would be used in all library schools across the country. He said the curriculum and benchmarks provided information on facilities, staffing, nomenclature of LIS degrees, faculty domicile and course contents. 

Minister of Education Malam Adamu Adamu, represented by the Permanent Secretary, Mr Sunny Echono, said government would improve library services and ensure that all Nigerians got access to quality education.

He called on librarian to join the campaign against corruption by providing accurate documents on anti-corruption matters.
