The library as an integral and significant part of academia has undergone phenomenal development in the use of ICTs which have substantially influenced information resources’ acquisition, processing, storage and use. The library and information professionals have increasingly become aware of the potential of computer as a powerful tool that can be applied to improve both the operational efficiency of the library and information personnel and the quality of various services provided to the user community. Such awareness has been reinforced by the successful experiments carried out in this direction in many of the developed countries and few in Nigeria. However, despite the huge benefits of automation to library operations in Nigeria, which enhance the job satisfaction and productivity of library personnel, some setbacks have been discovered as impediments to enjoying these benefits. Some of them are lack of fund, and lack of trained library personnel. Before academic libraries can take the full advantage of the benefits that come with automation, certain parameters such as adequate plans and preparation, consultations, adequate fund for uninterrupted power supply and required ICT infrastructures, regular in-house IT training, must be put in place.
