Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Nigeria has changed in diverse sectors such as education, politics, agriculture, health, technology and so forth in view of development and modernisation across these sectors. Consequently, the diverse structure of Nigerias federalism is discussed in terms of the various development plans put forward by successive governments. This paper particularly noted the various institutional and special libraries as contributing to these strides with a responsibility of developing a literate community of its patrons. Some of the roles that libraries play in the development of Nigeria have been buttressed through various writers relayed in this paper. The work concludes that there is no development or modernisation in practical terms without impacting on people directly, which has the major reason libraries channel their services toward people of all careers and background.
