RATIONALE FOR THE LIBRARY AND INFORMATION SCIENCEPROGRAMME

 

 

Open and Distance learning (ODL) has become globally accepted alternative for the provision of highly qualitative education at flexible, accessible and affordable cost. ODL is also a viable means for the attainment of the internationally agreed goals of development such as Education for all (EFA) and Millennium Development Goals (MDG) initiatives. Also globally accepted in the Education industry is the adoption of Open Educational Resources (OER). The acceptance of ODL and OER has made it mandatory to educate the learners on means of effectively utilising the provisions of these offerings maximally. Hence, the need for the establishment of Library and Information Science programme in the University.

 

This programme exposes students to the training and learning of Information Science, Resources Management, and their utilization at the classroom level for the award of Bachelor Degree in Library and Information Science.The intended students for the programme are also expected to be well-grounded in Education as proposed by National University Commission (NUC) BMAS (2007). Thus, the National Open University of Nigeria, by virtue of her mandate as the only single mode ODL Institution in Nigeria is well positioned to host the programme because of its importance in Education and the geographicalspread of the NOUN Study Centres all over Nigeria which makes it easily accessible to intending students.

 

The Faculty of Education has the capacity to contribute in meeting this national need by bridging the gap between learners and educational resources. This can be achieved by training their trainers as Library and Information Science Professionals.

 

There already exists cross cutting course materials for the undergraduate programmes in the Faculty of Education and the NOUN GST Courses that will facilitate the smooth take off of the proposed programme. Experts in Library and Information Science will intensify efforts to complete the development of core course materials for the programme. It is our strong belief that approval of the programme would fulfil the aspirations of a large number of prospective candidates who desire to embark on the programme as well as that of the University community. Furthermore, it will also provide the much needed manpower in the profession for Libraries at all levels of education in Nigeria and in all organizations.

5.0PHILOSOPHY, AIMS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAMME

 

5.1   Philosophy, Vision, Mission and Objectives of the BLIS Programme

The philosophy of the Library and Information Science education is to impart the requisite knowledge; techniques; experiences; and skills of library and information work to the prospective students while focusing on the needs of the society and the current trends in the use of Information and Communication Technologies in acquiring; organizing; accessing; preserving; and disseminating information. This is in line with the national objectives of education as contained in Section1 and Paragraph1 of the National Policy on Education:

  1. A free and democratic society
  2. A just and egalitarian society
  3. A united, strong and self-reliant nation
  4. A great and dynamic economy
  5. A land of bright and full opportunities for all citizens

 

It is within the above context that the philosophy of education for Library and Information Science in National Open University of Nigeria is based. In like manner, in order to make the philosophy of library education and training functional, the department is being conscious of the fact that students will require an understanding and skills of other disciplines. Thus, it has been made compulsory for students to possess some competencies in at least one foreign Language and also take courses from other disciplines outside the department.

 

This is to widen the horizon of the students to be independent thinkers and also to be able cope with the continuing challenges in the society. The Department has also introduced courses with ICT components so that students can be technology compliant in line with the contemporary trends in library and information work. This approach is in line with the functionalisation of the National Policy on Education (Sections 5 and 9) which provides detailed expectations of the goals as contained under Higher Education schedule.

 

The provisions in Section 5 are:

  • The acquisition, development and inculcation of proper value -orientation for the survival of the individual and society.
  • The development of the intellectual capacities of the individual to enable him/her understands and appreciates his/her environment.
  • The acquisition of both physical and intellectual skills which will enable the individual to develop into a useful member of the Community.
  • The acquisition of an objective view of local and external environments.

NOTE 1: The NUC has designed a new guideline for course system and grade point average computation, effective 2016 second semester as follows:

  • 70 – 100 = A (4 POINTS)
  • 60 – 69 = B (3 POINTS)
  • 50 – 59 = C (2 POINTS)
  • 45 – 49 = D (1 POINT)
  • 0 – 44 = E (0 POINT)

 

Likewise the new degree classification system is as follows

  • 3.5 – 4.0 = First class
  • 3.0 – 3.49 = Second class upper
  • 2.0 – 2.99 = Second class lower
  • 1.0 – 1.99 = Third class
  • BELOW 1.0 = fail

 

NOTE 2: The actual Scoring and Grading System to be used remains that approved by the Senate of NOUN

 

7.3       Probation

A student whose cumulative Grade Point Average is below 1.50 at the point of a particular year of study earns a period of probation for one (1) year.

 

7.4    Withdrawal

Students whose cumulative grade point average is below 1.5 after probation year should be asked to withdraw from the programme.

 

7.5       Course Credit Unit System

This is a system of organization of the curriculum in which courses are broken down into units and are examinable and for which students earn credit(s) if passed’.  The courses are assigned weights allied Credit Units. E.g. three credits units means three hours of lecture per week which includes practical.

 

7.6 Grade Point Average and Cumulative Grade Point Average

Performance in any semester is reported in Grade Point Average.  This is the average of weighted grade points earned in the courses taken during the semester.  The Grade Point Average is obtained by multiplying the Grade Point average in each course by the number of Credit Units assigned to that course, and then summing these up and dividing by the total number of Credit Units taken for the semester. Example; A student took 3 courses in a semester, EDU112, EDU114, CIT102 with credit units 2, 2, 3 respectively and respective grade is A, C, B. This is illustrated in the table:

 

 

 

 

Course Code

Credit Unit (u)

Grade (x)

EDU112

2

A

EDU114

2

C

CIT102

3

B

 

Know that A is 5 points; B is 4 points while C is 3 points, His GPA =

∑(xu)∕∑u  = (2x5)+(2x3)+(3x4)/(2+2+3)

                = (10+6+12)/7

                = 28/7 = 4. His GPA in the semester is 4.

This is done cumulatively for further semester to get his Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)

           

8.0 EVALUATION

 

8.1 Techniques of Students Assessment

The assessments of students’ progress are done through a combination of the following methods:

(a)        Written essay examination

(b)        Computer-based objective examinations

(c)        Individual projects

(d)       Seminar presentation

(e)        Field experience assessments

 

8.2 Continuous Assessment

The weighting of continuous assessment is 30% of the final grade, course by course.  This consists of Tutor Marked Assignments (TMA) and constitutes 30% of the total score. The final grade of a student in a semester consists of two parts:

(a)  final assessment grade and

(b)  all assessments prior to final (end of course) examination

All assessment prior to final include: seminar papers, teaching practice, individual projects, and TMA assignment.  The award of the degree is based on the cumulative records of grades obtained. The End of Course examination is 70%.

 

8.3Tutor-Marked Assignment

As part of the evaluation mechanism, each course is provided with 4 TMA’s out of which the best 3 are used as part of Continuous Assessments for a course. The TMAs are objective questions. To qualify to sit for examination therefore, each student must turn in at least three TMA’s for each of the course.

 

8.4       End of Semester Examination

Each course is examined at the end of the semester. Academic staff of the Faculty who are experts in the various course areas are given the task of setting questions for 100 and 200 levels, the questions are in objective format. 60 MCQ (multiple choice questions) and 60 FBQ (fill-in-the blank questions) are set for each course. From 300 level and above, four/five questions in each course are set.

 

Thereafter the questions are internally moderated by the Dean in conjunction with senior members of staff before they are sent to an External Assessors for moderation. External assessors who are experts in the field of the rank of senior lecturer and above are selected from other tertiary institutions. Students are required to answer three out of four questions or four out of five questions depending on the course credit units.

 

8.5 External Examination System

External Examiners are used to moderate final year courses, projects, and teaching practice.

 

8.6 Students’ Evaluation of Courses

Students are made to evaluate each course at the end of each semester by means of the following:

  • Quality of course materials

11.0CONCLUSION

 

Bachelor of Library and Information Science programme is proposed to be one of the new programmes in the Faculty of Education. The programme promises to be a viable addition to the Faculty, University and the Country at large. It is designed to provide students with high level of intellectual and professional skills to function effectively as professionals.

 

The Bachelor of Library and Information Science Programme is prepared by the underlisted Faculty of Education Team based on an initial work of Professor Zakari Mohammed. In addition, BLIS Programme of eight (8) other Universities as well as National Universities Commission (NUC) Bench Minimum Academic Standard (BMAS) for Library and Information Science Programme in Nigerian Universities were consulted for this position to be taken.

 

On this premise, I propose a thorough consideration of the inclusion of Bachelor of Library Science Programme to the Faculty of Education.
