Dr. (Mrs.) Mulikat Salaam, the immediate past librarian at the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), has condemned the condition and management of libraries in the country compared to other parts of the world.

Delivering the Keynote Address paper tagged: “Library: A Social Tool,” at the recently concluded Annual General Meeting of the Nigerian Library Association (NLA), Dr. Salaam advocated for the location of libraries in attractive and decent buildings.

According to her, “Our Libraries should be designed in such a way to promote comfort, relaxation and silence” and most importantly, “Librarians should be more creative and innovative to encourage the library users”.

She advised the Librarians to apply best practices to service delivery in libraries as it the practice in advanced countries.

Speaking on the importance of ICT in modern-day library management she said, “Electronic libraries need to be well equipped and set rolling in our internet-based world because no one has time to walk to a library when they can access internet services on their palms”.

In her advocacy for proper funding, she tasked governments at all levels of administrations to give adequate attention to the sector just as she charged librarians to embark on advocacy for their voices to be heard among other professions.

Mentoring the participants at the AGM, the Pioneer University Librarian of FUNAAB, Dr. Taofeek Salisu advised the Librarians to invest in themselves, by spending their money on the search for knowledge.

Dr. Salisu urged the Librarians to participate in Seminars and Workshops, and most especially, take their integrity paramount.

Earlier, the Chairperson NLA, Ogun State Chapter, Dr. Oyinade Tomori described library as an Institution that had been in existence from time, with great impact in the areas of acquisition of knowledge, research, academics, innovation and preservation history, moral, religious and social information.

According to her, “The Library has had, is having, and will continue to have much and un-quantified social impact on man and humanity.
