520 |aThis article examines the relevance of training and skills development to modern librarianship in the first generation universities in Nigeria. The developments noticed in this sector in the universities within the past decade made it imperative to have new workers with new skills to adopt to the many changes that have taken place that are likely to affect the working environments and professional functions of the librarians. A descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. 80 librarians made up of (twenty eight) 28 professional librarians and 52 para-professional librarians participated in the study. Data were collected using a questionnaire tagged Workers Skills Development Questionnaire (WSDQ) and this was complemented with structured interview. Findings revealed that librarians should be trained to cope with global change in librarianship. Specific areas where skills need to be enhanced were identified and suggestions for sources of fund were described. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
