Electronic Information Resource Sharing Among Academic Libraries in Delta State, Nigeria.
(National Library of Nigeria, 0202-12-01) Janet Onomeh Ubogu phD, CLN
The study was on electronic information resource sharing among academic libraries in Delta State, Nigeria. Data was collected for the study through a structured questionnaire. Data were analyzed using frequency counts and simple percentage. The findings of the study showed that all the libraries investigated had electronic resource such as e-books, electronic newspapers, e-journals and e-magazines in their libraries. All the libraries investigated were equipped with ICT gadgets that could be used in resource sharing activities, providing suitable access to information and improving interlibrary teamwork were some of the benefits of e-resource sharing identified in the study, medium of providing access to e-resource through resource sharing was structured consortium arrangement with others institutions, but inadequate ICT facilities for resource sharing/networking, high cost of Internet connectivity, lack of government support, inadequate number of librarians with web technology skills and difficulty in mutual agreement were identified as the major problems encountered in electronic resource sharing among academic libraries in Delta State. The study also recommended that management of academic libraries should try as much as possible to acquire all necessary ICT facilities needed for e-resource sharing and for easy dissemination of information to patrons outside their libraries. Parent institutions and library managements should ensure that they release sufficient money for the maintenance of Internet connectivity in order to sustain e-resource sharing in academic libraries. Government should encourage e-resource sharing among libraries as this will assist librarians and other information practitioners in the sharing of information across the state, to information seekers, and librarians should acquire web technology skills needed for e-resource sharing among libraries.

Legal Deposit Compliance in Nigeria: Issues and Challenges
(National Library of Nigeria, 2021-12-01) Akpabio, I.G; Abdulazeez, M.K; Oye, O.M
The National Library of Nigeria Act of 1970 in section 4 clearly states legal deposit obligations and consequences for any infraction. This proactively provides a cover for inclusion of electronic publications which means that irrespective of the medium of delivery of the content, the legal provision applies. The number of titles submitted as legal deposit nose-dived from 903 and 1042 in 2013 and 2014 respectively to 351 in 2015 for serials. The rate of change (geometric mean) in legal deposit for serials and monogrphs in the last 10 years (2007-2016) were 1289 and 3399 titles/year respectively. Simple computation of legal deposit compliance level based on percentage of tiltes submitted against the total number of serials and monogrophs published in a particular year is also a problem. The details of the specific amendments being proposed to the legal deposit legislation are yet to be made public. A monitoring and evaluation pln which is a self-auditing process that helps management to identify any deviation from set goals is needed. The challenges facing legal deposit compliance in Nigeria range from the problem of non-adherence to the time-limit, non-submiossion of required copies, submission of impecfect copies, un-coopertive attitudes of some government agencies, publishers and authors to inadequate funding.
