The concept of professionalism implies a body of knowledge, skills and traditions derived from practical experience in an activity recognised and approved by society. This work is culture-specific because it focusses on determining the degree of professionalism attained in Nigerian librarianship since 1948 when library development and librarianship was established in the country. The role of information and libraries is increasingly gaining national recognition and acceptance but its importance as a professional activity seems underrated in the country's development plans. It was considered that the factors of growth in the professionalisation of librarianship need to be demonstrated so as to enlighten the situation and influence future developments.
