Library science education in Nigeria has experienced several stages of developments and changes in curricula. There is some research on the history of library science education in Nigeria. However, little research has been conducted on curriculum development per se from a historical perspective. This study examines the historical and current status of curriculum development in Nigeria. It compares the changes in curricula from various stages and analyzes the factors influencing the curriculum development. The main problems in curriculum development are discussed. Suggestions and recommendations are helpful for library schools to successfully adapt themselves to the digital age and to develop future curriculum effectively.
