Abstract

In this era of globalization, it would be incongruous to talk about access to knowledge without a
revamped information service delivery. There is a growing need for the librarian to be
adequately prepared for the task of enhance access to information technology as it relates to
knowledge. This paper discusses the information service delivery for access to knowledge such
as mobile library services, reader services, current awareness services, circulation services,
media services, abstracting and indexing services. The paper brings to the fore, the need for
capacity building on the part of the librarian as one of the challenges in information service
delivery for access to knowledge, especially when the challenges posed by knowledge seekers
keep mounting daily. The paper concludes and recommends the provision of adequate power
supply, provision of funds for the sustainability of the service and provision of effective and
efficient personnel that will provide adequate and effective job performance for the service to
move ahead, and how to improve on information service delivery for access to knowledge.
