Abstract

Observes that many ideas concerning the year 2000 (for example, health, power, water, roads, etc.) in Nigeria are merely glib statements with no real positive back‐up. These include predictions about library provision. Presents a study in which data from ten Nigerian universities were examined and used in comparison with other African and with British universities. Looks at the corresponding availability of each one’s available services, and at how effective in these areas they are. Concludes that the Nigerian systems have a long way yet to go to reach desired levels.
