This paper provides a progress and developmental report of automation in Nigerian universities from the early 1970's to the present period. The report covers both the Federal and State-owned university libraries. Private universities were excluded from the report because they are still in their infancy. The report shows that all the university libraries in Nigeria are at one developmental stage of automation or the other. While some university libraries have fully automated their operations others are making some progress along this line while the challenges of library automation are discussed and solutions proposed.
