Akwa Ibom To LaunchState e-Library Soon


The new Akwa Ibom State e-
Library will soon open to the
public, the Commissioner for
Information and Communications
Mr Aniekan Umanah has said.
He told reporters in Uyo that the
registration is available to online
and On-site readers; while the
Online Public Access Catalogue
(OPAC) links the world e-library
and other e-resource websites.
Umanah revealed that the official
website address of the library is
www.ibomelibrary.org, adding
that it has e-resources that can only
be accessed onsite (intranet) within
the facility of the Library.
The Commissioner also said the
state is processing a top level
domain website
www.ibomelibrary.gov.ng to
ensure that all components of the
library are easily accessed by
registered users from all parts of
the world.
Similarly, the Principal
Consultant at the e-Library Prof
Felicia Etim said to have access to
the facilities of the e-library both
online and on-site users must first
register and be issued with access-
card or account details.
She explained further that after
acquiring the access card, users
should go online, click on My
Account, then Register and Log In
after which they can search for e-
resources of their choice, print or
download depending on their
subscription level.
Etim also informed library users
that experimental websites like
www.akselibrary.org and
www.akselibrary.org.ng were not
valid for access to the e-library.
Modalities for payments and
account details, she explained, are
being worked out and added that
the date for the full opening of
the library will be announced next
