AUN, winner of the Best Digital Library Services Award, to host university librarians May 22

The American University of Nigeria will May 22-25 host the 99th Biannual Conference of the Association of University Librarians of Nigerian Universities (AULNU).

Formerly the Committee of University Librarians of Nigerian Universities (CULNU), the association changed its name at its 98th conference at Covenant University, Ota.

In 2012, CULNU awarded AUN the Best Digital Library Services in Nigeria award, while the American Library Association bestowed the award for Innovative International Library Projects in 2013.

Announcing the event on Wednesday, May 18, the Assistant Vice President of Digital Services at AUN, Julius Ayuk Tabe, said the 99th biannual conference would a momentous occasion for the University, which joined AULNU at the university’s inception in 2005.

The three-day conference begins with arrivals on Sunday, May 22, followed by a meeting of the association’s executives on the same day.

Day two begins with registration formalities and a courtesy call on the AUN President, Dr. Margee Ensign, who will give the keynote speech, “The Use of E-resources in a Development University,” at the opening of the conference.

Mr. Tabe said the choice of AUN as host was both timely and a reflection of the reality on ground.

“AULNU obliging us now is a bold statement attesting to the improved security situation in Nigeria’s northeast. We have decided to reciprocate their confidence in us and to showcase our award-winning institution.”

Other highlights of the meeting will include a paper on “Management of Nigerian University Libraries: Challenges and Prospects,” by the former librarian at Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Inuwa Dikko, and a goodwill message by the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission, Professor Julius E. Okojie.

The conference will be formally opened by the Executive Governor of Adamawa State, Muhammed Umar Jibrilla.
