Gbadamosi, Belau Olatunde
Online Submission, US-China Education Review v8 n5 p711-717 May 2011
The paper examines the level of library automation and virtual library development in four academic libraries. A validated questionnaire was used to capture the responses from academic librarians of the libraries under study. The paper discovers that none of the four academic libraries is fully automated. The libraries make use of librarians with background training in computer applications coupled with in-house and sponsored conferences and workshops. Again, none of the automation and internet equipments in these four institutions is assessed to be adequate. The paper recommends that parent institutions should give priority to the development of library automation and virtual library development through internet connectivity by voting adequate fund to this project.
