Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln



The library and its services are fundamental to the socioeconomic and educational development of a nation. In the Niger Delta, a majority of the people live in rural areas and engage in fishing and farming. Library services can improve their level of literacy and education and and enhance their ability to use information relevant to their daily lives. Barriers to library service in the rural areas of the Niger Delta are poor infrastructure, inadequate funding, and inadequate staffing. Recommendations are made to improve the situation.
