English abstract

Discusses the contribution of the libraries for the progress of education, commerce, industry and science and technology. Points out that unless educationists, business men, scientists and engineers can keep up with the fast–moving world, they and their countries have to act blindly or resign themselves to a situation in which they thoughtlessly ape their fellow civilized men without being able to check on veracity or falsity of what they are doing. The study examines the role played by public libraries in the development of technology advanced countries. On the basis of that, Nigerian situation is evaluated and suggestions for improvement are given.
