This paper x-rays the state of affairs of career development of library professionals and their movement in Ogun State University Library (OSUL), Ago-Iwoye. Questionnaire, personal observation and interviews were used to gather the required data. Sixteen out of the eighteen copies of the questionnaire distributed were completed and finally returned - a response rate of 88.9%. The study reveals that topmost priority attention is yet to be given to career development of library professionals in OSUL. This shortcoming is linked to the poor funding of the University by the owner government. The net result is the increased tendency of these professionals to migrate out of the service of OSUL. Some recommendations aimed at reversing the ugly trend, in OSUL and the entire Nigerian university system are listed.
