Abstract: Nigeria has in principle made a commitment to the development of science and technology for the transformation of the national economy. However, the importance of information resources and systems in the success of scientific and technological enterprise does not seem to be adequately appreciated by the Government policy makers. Consequently the publishing industry and the library services have been adversely affected by the economic depression over the past decade. Nevertheless a continuous evolution of conceptual and mental orientation towards rational developments of scientific and technical information systems has been due largely to the efforts of some information specialists in creating necessary awareness and stimulating organizational support. In spite of initial setbacks, the use of information technology has become a matter of urgent interest in some university and research libraries, while two research libraries are serving' as a model in automated services. Coordination of systems development for science and technology is necessary. This paper discusses the concepts of organizational structures and their coordinating functions.
