Abstract

A number of international agencies, governments, individual institutions and philanthropic foundations have contributed in various ways to the development of libraries in Ghana. This paper looks at the role of the Overseas Development Administration’s Book Presentation Programme (ODA/BPP) in the University of Ghana Library. The paper provides a justification for the continued reliance on such assistance and concludes that the assistance which has now been channelled to second cycle institutions should be reintroduced, but with a suggestion that slight modifications be made in the programme.
