Professions are distinct groups whose members share body of knowledge and practice as well as ethics of engagements in common. Every profession is brought together by an association that in one way or another influences the practice of the profession. The influence of library associations, for example, IFLA, AfLIA, and NLA, on library and information services cannot be underestimated, but suffice it to say that these associations have led to the growth and development of the library profession. This chapter therefore examines these associations, programmes, areas of influence, their problems, and recommendations are made based on the identified challenges.
