Nigeria sees launch of AADL and Online BookStor

Nigeria sees launch of AADL and Online BookStor

LibStor has had an exciting week with the launch of African Digital Library Service and the Online Retail BookStor at the NLA Conference in Nigeria. Dr Alim Mackie- Conteh and Mrs Yemisi  Akinrinadi were on hand with the excellent staff from Havilah to present the products and services available to the public, students, professionals and librarians. The event was very well attended with over 1000 librarians visiting the conference. Discussions were firmly focused on how to improve access to digital materials and the need for libraries to push for more investment to improve digital services.  A lot of attention was given to Digital Archives and the means by which physical content can be scanned and captured in digital format to add to an eBook collection to support research. Havilah graciously provided part of their stand to support the launch of AADL and will be working closely with us to produce digital technology solutions to their clients.  A busy week and a busy year ahead as a result of the new friends and contacts made this week.
