Abstract

Education and training of information professionals: the collaborative role of the Librarians’ Registration Council of Nigeria (LRCN)

The challenges of the information age make collaboration among the information management stakeholders imperative. The Librarians’ Registration Council of Nigeria (LRCN) carried out some of its professional regulatory functions and training of information professionals to deliver quality information services through collaborative effort and by fostering enduring local and international partnership. This study assesses some of the successful collaborative projects of LRCN with local and international agencies on training and capacity building for Nigerian librarians. It discusses the success factors in these efforts, presents the benefits and challenges of fostering and sustaining these partnership. It also makes appropriate recommendations for improving collaboration between LRCN and other LIS stakeholders, especially in the education and training of professionals in Nigeria.
