Oregon State University Libraries Partners With a Library at a Nigerian University

osu-tagOregon State University Libraries has established a collaborative effort with the Nimbe Adedipe Library of the Federal University of Agriculture in Abeokuta, Nigeria. The Federal University of Agriculture is a public university in Nigeria consisting of nine colleges, with about 60 percent of majors focused on agriculture. It has about 19,000 students.

Under the agreement, the “sister” libraries will participate in staff exchanges and research projects. Members of the staff of the libraries will participate in virtual seminars and academic meetings and the two libraries will exchange reference and other library materials.

Laurie Bridges, a librarian and associate professor at Oregon State University who is the coordinator of the sister library project, stated that “there are many benefits for OSU Libraries to seek out an international sister library relationship. It helps raise awareness of issues and needs facing libraries internationally, it helps us share techniques and technologies to solve problems, and it increases the information, resources, and expertise between both libraries. It also increases the diversity of interaction between professionals.”
