Digital Library Education: Global Trends and Issues

Magaji Shem


The paper examines trends and issues in digital education programmes globally, drawing  examples of developmental growth of Library Information Science (LIS), schools and digital education courses in North America, Britain, and Southern Asia, the slow growth of LIS schools and digital education in Nigeria and some countries in Africa and India. The literature so far visited dictated problems of inadequacy in digital education globally to dearth of faculty, training facilities, no collaboration among LIS schools in developing countries, encouraging collaborations in developed countries and not many students attracted to the course. Recommended solutions are suggested for attracting students into the programme and what to do to make it competitive like other programmes in the universities.

Keywords: Education, Digital, Library Information Science (LIS), Digital Library Education.
