Last year's Presidential address was devoted to a discussion on the problems which lie ahead of us with particular reference to the Seven-Year Development Plan. The tasks which lie ahead in developing an adequate and effective library system for Ghana are so complex, that I felt I must discuss them again this year.

Some time ago I gave a lecture entitled ""a concept of relevance"" to the students of the Ghana Library School, in which I tried to isolate some of the professional problems that face librarians here, and by extension all countries going through similar stages of development.

This paper is about a library which we hope, will eventually grow to serve the entire nation. If you will forgive me, I shall change slightly the title to 'The Central Science, Reference and Research Library of the Ghana Academy of Sciences'. This is because even though it is hoped that this library - the C.S.R.R.L. - would eventually grow to serve the whole country, the idea as originally conceived was not a national scale.

We are here this morning to discuss the position of the Library in Ghanaian society, and for that matter in our twentieth century African Society. In other words, we meet to discuss our professional role and responsibilities in the society in which we live. In the process of our discussion, we hope to evolve a new concept of librarianship, call it ""African Librarianship"".

In these experiences more black men became interested in reading and learning about their ancestors and their place in history.
