Abstract

The paper examines the information literacy function of libraries as an indispensable catalyst in educational and national development. It also discusses specific and concrete ways in which libraries facilitate such development through the skills inculcated into users. Realities and peculiarities of library services in developing countries were reviewed. It concludes that since only enlightened, creative and skilled workforce can translate to development, adequate investment in libraries becomes a sine-qua-non.
