The emergence of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and digitisation, has caused a growing revolution in the business of provision and management of information. The University Library FUTA has, in line with the changing needs of her clientele and the demands of globalisation widened the scope of her services to include multimedia, online and offline resources. These digital resources have in no little way supplemented the available print-based research collection particularly journals. The available resources which are managed by the technical staff of the E-Resources Unit are:
Online subscription-based databases
