Abstract

This is a brief review of libraries and information provision in the Government Ministries and Departments in Ghana. It is based on personal visits to ten of these libraries in Accra, as well as interviews with some of the staff and users of these libraries. The study attempts to describe the existing facilities in terms of accommodation, library stock, services, finance and staffing, indicating whether they meet the needs of the Ministries and Departments they serve. Recommendations are made for the improvement of libraries in order to make them effective for the cultural, economic, social, political and industrial development of the country.
