dc.description.abstract The Parliament of Namibia library is a legislative and a legal deposit library of the Namibian Parliament (National Assembly and National Council). The purpose of the study was to investigate the roles of the Parliament Library of Namibia in the provision of relevant information to the Namibian Parliamentarians. The main research question of this study was, “To what extent does the Parliament of Namibia library effectively provide relevant and accurate information to the Namibian Members of Parliament to make laws and informed policies?”. The study took place from the was collected through questionnaires from the Members of Parliament and interviews from the two librarians. The total sampled population comprised of 23 Members of Parliament, 10 respondents from the National Assembly and 13 participants from the National Council. The Descriptive Statistical Analysis was used to analyse quantitative data from the questionnaires and SPSS was used for data entry. Content analysis was used to analyse qualitative data from the interviews. The findings show that Members of Parliament of the National Council are not aware that the Parliament library exists, and they mostly depend on the general public from their constituencies to provide them with information. National Assembly Members of Parliament are aware of the library’s existence but due to time constraints, they are unable to visit the library to access the services. The study came up with recommendation on how to improve the library services. en_US
