Abstract:
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 of the heads of the libraries under study. The study discovered that three of the four academic libraries were partially automated and that 50% of the identified workstations were automated. The few libraries that were automated adopted in-house workshop/seminar, sponsored workshop/conference in training different categories of library staff. The paper recommended that parent institutions should give priority to the development of library automation and virtual library development.
