Abstract: The University of Ibadan library system embarked on the automation of its operations in 1991. This paper reviews the automation project plan and processes of the library over the period and highlights the problems stunting the project. The importance of periodical evaluation of performance is discussed. The paper recommends that libraries should have strategic plan for their automation projects constantly review long, intermediate and short-term goals to align with developments in the ICT industry, develop programs with active participation of the library professionals and support staff, and also ensure cooperation with other libraries either at local, regional or national levels. This paper concludes that library automation in Nigerian libraries is a challenging but achievable task.
