then Register and Log In
after which they can search for e-resources of their own choosing, print it out or download depending on their subscription level.
And as you know, the higher your subscription fee, the greater your account access to do certain things.
Professor Felicia Etim also informed the library users that experimental websites like

are not valid for access to the e-library.
The Modalities for payments and account details, Prof. Etim explained, are being worked out and she also added that the date for the full opening of the library will very soon be announced next month.
So we are seriously waiting for this e-Library.
The idea looks really modernized.
Truly, Nigeria is gradually coming out of the third world countries category to a higher level.
