Librarians for Ghana.
Harris, John
The history of librarianship in Ghana began in 1944 when Miss Fegan, an experienced librarian, was assigned by the British Council to run a training course for library assistants at the Achimota College Library. The subsequent development of libraries, library schools, and librarianship in Ghana is traced. To become a professional librarian in Ghana today requires the completion of a diploma course which is open only to university graduates judged to have the requisite qualities of mind, personality and temperament to make satisfactory librarians. The course consists of two parts: (1) one academic session, ending with five written examination papers and (2) the completion of a written bibliography or thesis and practical experience in an approved library. The subjects covered in the syllabus are: (1) cataloging and classification, (2) bibliography, (3) history of libraries and librarianship and (4) administration. (Author/NH)
