MTN Nigeria are on the move to evacuate the digital Library donated to University of Lagos (UNILAG).
The company are dissatisfied with the fact that the state-of-the-art digital library, donated to the school in 2005, has been Under lock and key in the last five years.
In-house sources at the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) office of the telecommunication outfit informed The Guardian that the evacuation processes would begin soon, even as it was gathered that troubled Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo Campus may be the new beneficiary.
The abandoned facility helped the 54-year-old institution to link up with other citadels of learning for reference books and research materials. It put at the disposal of the school, intellectual resources of over 5,500 libraries, organisations, publishers of academic journals, professional reference and scholarly works.
“This library will support the assembly and creative use of up-to-date information at the click of a mouse,” Executive Director, MTN Foundation, Amina Oyagbola, had said at the commissioning.
At the opening, the library guaranteed two-year subscription to journals, books and so on, as well as a two-year maintenance contract to ensure the environment was adequately maintained.
It was gathered that the facility and its 125 networked computers, three laser jet printers, a server, and VSAT-based Internet connectivity, 15 air-conditioners, and alternative power generation all ran like a well oiled machine for the two years
