Description

About Librarians’ Registration Council of Nigeria

After several decades of agitation by senior Librarians and other stakeholders for a body that would regulate the practice of librarianship in Nigeria, the LRCN was established by Act 12 of 1995, by the Federal Government of Nigeria, as a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of Education, with the mandate to regulate the practice of Librarianship in Nigeria.

For effective implementation of the mandate, the then Hon. Minister of Education Prof. Babalola Borisade inaugurated a 29 man Governing Council on May 2002, who inducted the first batch of 536 applicants as certified librarians.
The Council became operational in October 2009, with the appointment of a pioneer Ag. Registrar Dr. Victoria Okojie, by the President. For effective take-off of the Council, ten (10) staff members were seconded from the National Library of Nigeria which also provided a temporary accommodation in its headquarters.
In the last quarter of 2010, a total of 73 staff were recruited comprising the professionals and supporting staff.

Vision

To be a world-class regulatory body that provides a platform for the delivery of quality library and information service in Nigeria.

Mission

To pursue the attainment of professional excellence by determining who are librarians; the standard of knowledge and skills required for registration and practice; guidelines for accreditation  and minimum standards for libraries, and maintenance of professional discipline among librarians.
