Introduction Libraries are essentially non-profit social service institutions. However, among the different social service institutions in Nigeria, libraries appear to be the least understood by the people for whom they are established and, perhaps, the least provided for in terms of resources. Although governments and the parent or funding bodies of libraries usually acknowledge the importance of libraries in educational, cultural and social development of the country, this is often not backed up with commensurate investment in libraries. Moreover, during tough economic conditions like what Nigeria is experiencing under the current global economic difficulties, library and information services often are the first to experience cutback in allocated resources. Accordingly, each library must be able to continually justify its annual demand for resources in the context of other competing community or organisational demand for the same resources.
