The paper also stresses that the technological salvation of Nigerian Universities libraries (NULs). The paper also stresses that the technological salvation of Nigerian Universities libraries lies not in their perpetual dependence on technologically equipped expatriates and thier agencies, rather it lies in thier ability to evovle internally generated programmes for appropriate human resources development aimed at providing indigenous ICT capacity for adaptive and innovative ICT utilization within their specific local environments.
