Traces the development of library schools in Nigeria since the Ibadan School began the training of librarians locally in 1960, and observes that the trend is towards training at the undergraduate level for a Bachelor’s degree. Examines the local conditions which have made the Bachelor’s degree programmes become most common and consequently generally accepted in Nigeria as the first professional qualification. Disagrees with the suggestion that librarians should only be trained at the postgraduate level. Notes the confusion in the admission and duration of the MLS programmes and suggests that non‐BLS graduates in Nigeria should spend more time on the MLS to learn more.
