 A social survey method of research was adopted for the study and
questionnaire as a research instrument was used. Reveals that many
libraries lack digital preservation policy while many librarians do not
have training on digital resources preservation. *Reports that knowledge
among librarians about digital preservation is low. Preservation challenges
identified includes lack of management support, standard and policies as
well as poor funding and low capacity building for libraries and
librarians.* Recommended for the development and implementation of digital
preservation policies, training and retraining of librarians, and review of
Library and Information Science (LIS) curriculum, among others.
