This study focused on the influence of self-management competencies and self-awareness for lifelong learning in university libraries in southwest Nigeria. The survey research design was adopted for the study and purposive sampling procedure was used to select 38 participants to constitute the sample size for the study. Findings from the study revealed an average level of personal drive and resilience for lifelong learning among librarians in the selected universities in Nigeria. The findings from spearman’s correlation test analysis showed a statistically significant relationship between self-awareness and self-development. It was recommended that librarians should continuously improve their personal drive and resilience in order to satisfy the information needs of their users. Also, librarians should rise to the momentum of keeping up with the pace of the changing narratives and the demands of their users so as to remain relevant.
