Are you seeking admission into any Nigerian university to study library and information science? If yes is your answer, then this post is for you.

Library and Information Science as a Course in the Nigerian Universities

Library and information science are concerned with the management of the library, its collection, and its services. But with the advancement of technology, library and information science, therefore, is interested in the deployment of technology to information dissemination in the library.

In most Nigerian universities, library and information science is found under the faculty of Education. But in some Nigerian universities, library and information science is said to be a social science course since it is concerned with user’s behavior.

The requirement to Study Library and Information Science in the Nigerian Universities


Candidates are expected to have a 5 credit pass in subjects including Mathematics, English Language, physics and two other science subjects. Also, candidates are expected to take Mathematics, English language, physics and either Economics or Biology or Chemistry in the annual JAMB examination. I will rather recommend that you view the JAMB brochure for requirements to study Library and Information science (L.I.S) because there are different criteria presented by Nigerian universities which offer admission to study Library and Information science.
