MY PERSONAL INFORMATION NEED

Information need is an individual or group's desire to locate and obtain information to satisfy a conscious or unconscious need. The ‘information’ and ‘need’ in ‘information need’ are inseparable interconnection. Needs and interests call forth information. My personal information needs include the following:

WHY SHOULD I BE CONCERNED ABOUT POST GRADUATE EDUCATION?
Continuing education is vital to staying current with trends and updates in the library profession. Ours is a field that continually adjusts to include innovations and new technology. This dynamic environment leads to changes in job duties and what it means to be a librarian. Participating in post graduate education with University of Ibadan, Department of Library, Archival and Information Studies (LARIS) will provide me with the opportunity to learn new skills and adapt to a changing profession.

RAISING CONFIDENT KIDS
Naturally, parents want to instill a can-do attitude in their kids so that they'll bravely take on new challenges and, over time, believe in themselves. Parents can help by giving kids lots of opportunities to practice and master their skills, letting kids make mistakes and being there to boost their spirits so they keep trying. Respond with interest and excitement when kids show off a new skill, and reward them with praise when they achieve a goal or make a good effort.

EFFECTIVE PARENTING
Kids start developing their sense of self as babies when they see themselves through their parents' eyes. Your tone of voice, your body language, and your every expression are absorbed by your kids. Your words and actions as a parent affect their developing self-esteem more than anything else.
Praising accomplishments, however small, will make them feel proud; letting kids do things independently will make them feel capable and strong. By contrast, belittling comments or comparing a child unfavorably with another will make kids feel worthless.
Choose your words carefully and be compassionate. Let your kids know that everyone makes mistakes and that you still love them, even when you don't love their behavior.

Make a point of finding something to praise every day. Be generous with rewards — your love, hugs, and compliments can work wonders and are often reward enough. Soon you will find you are "growing" more of the behavior you would like to see.
Discipline is necessary in every household. The goal of discipline is to help kids choose acceptable behaviors and learn self-control. They may test the limits you establish for them, but they need those limits to grow into responsible adults.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
A program which provides employee with counseling and information about the content of jobs, as well as how i must prepare to become a competitive applicant in the selection process.
A program that provides increased career opportunities by helping me qualify for promotion within my organization or to advance across organizational lines.

FOOD SAFETY
It is upsetting to think about, but the foods I eat to stay healthy can make me sick. Fortunately, there are many things I can do to protect myself and my family from foodborne illness. Be sure that your refrigerator and freezer are the right temperature for storing food
• Refrigerate or freeze perishable foods right away
• Throw away anything that looks or smells suspicious. If you think a food might be bad, don't taste it!
• Wash your hands well before preparing food
• Keep your work area, wash rags and utensils clean
• Cook meats thoroughly
