Provision of target-specific library services for the realization of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in developing countries
This paper examines the Role of Libraries in the Provision of Target-Specific Library Services for the Full Delivery of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in developing countries. The narrative textual case study (NTCS) method was adopted for the study. The paper highlighted on the place of libraries in the actualization of SDGs Agenda. The target-specific library services to be provided by libraries and exact actions that libraries should take in line with the 2030 agenda for realization of sustainable development goals in developing countries were extensively tabulated for ease of understanding. The position of the paper is that libraries are key actors in the attainment of the SDGs and that the different types of libraries irrespective of nomenclature have a place in the 2030 agenda. The paper concludes that SDGs can be actualized if libraries are repositioned to provide target specific information services through partnership with other institutions and agencies.
