To meet the challenges of a wide variety of jobs involved in library and information work, trained personnel are a sine qua non. This paper discusses the training of library and information science personnel at the postgraduate level in Ghana's only library school, the Department of Library and Archival Studies (DLAS), University of Ghana, Legon. It touches on a number of issues like programmes and courses offered, duration, general admission requirements, facilities and resources available as well as mode of instruction and assessment. Problems militating against the smooth operation of this library school are also examined. It concludes that, in spite of these problems, the DLAS has been a great force in the development and enhancement of the library profession in Ghana.
