UNN to host the 7th Nigerian Library Association Conference

 The Nigerian Library Association is set to host its Conference at the University of Nigeria.  This was disclosed during a courtesy visit by the Executive Committee of the Academic Research Libraries Section of the Nigeria Library Association at the VC's Conference room on Tuesday. The Chairman of the Committee, Dr. Ifeanyi Ezema said the UNN was chosen because it is the biggest and best Library amongst the other Libraries in West Africa. The UNN Vice-Chancellor, Prof Charles Arizechukwu Igwe, while reacting to the Chairman's speech, appreciated their visit and thanked them for choosing the UNN.  The VC stated with disappointment that students and even some lecturers do not use the Library but rather use just the internet which gives junk most of the time. "A school without a library is like a College of Medicine without a Teaching Hospital", Prof Igwe said.
