dc.description.abstractThe history of libraries and librarianship in Zambia is examined from the late 19th century to 1984,with emphasis on the twodecades following independence(1964-1984).Development in the following areas is discussed in detail:public libraries,school libraries,academic libraries,special libraries,library education and library associations.In addtion to providing an historical perspective on library development,various social,economic and political factors impinging on libraries and librarianship in Zambia are examined.The influence of the colonial period forms a background to the primary argument that government indifference to the plight of libraries and the library profession has been a major factor retarding library development in Zambia throughout the post-independence era.en_US
