Information is a crucial factor in national development, and the ability to use information tools is considered a source of power. The study of Library and Information Sciences is vitally important for development as librarians, libraries, and library associations, as well as information systems, all play a role in fostering creativity, innovation, and dealing with people's needs and expectations. Librarians should consider what is needed for national development and train sophisticated professionals to deal with development issues.
