In this information age, emphasis by LIS Professional is the advocacy for Open Access to intellectual resource. The days of closed access are over where you can only retrieved information by coming over as a patron to access it at the designate knowledge center. Hoarding intellectual contents that could be beneficial to a researcher somewhere around the world is not something to celebrate anymore.
In order not violate copyright right issues, as a Systems Librarian, we used copyright checker application in UNILORIN to ensures that all local intellectual property are safe to archive in our institutional repository. #Betterbyfar

[One professor we know comes into the college library at the end of every academic year, and asks for the list of students with overdue books. We cannot help noticing that the list corresponds precisely to the end of term grades. The student with the most overdue books failed their course.]
