Please note that access to the above database is temporarily unavailable.
The database is currently in the process of moving to a new host institution in Africa, Kwara State University Library in Nigeria. Read the full press release here. However, due to a number of technical issues relating to metadata mapping and software functionality, there have been some delays in the migration of the database. The new hosts now expect to re-launch the database sometime during the first half of 2017, on a more dynamic, Drupal-based open source content management platform. The first batch of updates, as well as almost 400 entirely new records, will then also be added to the database. When up, a link to the new database will appear on this page.
For more information about the new database to be launched by Kwara State University Library, contact Teslim B. Balogun, System Analyst/Project Manager, Kwara State University, PMB 1530, Malete, Kwara State, Nigeria 23431.
