ICT Librarian
ICT Division, Abdullahi Fodiyo Library Complex
Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Nigeria

My name is Kudirat Abiola Adegoke (Mrs.), the pioneer winner of the Young Library and Information Professionals (yLips) Award of the Nigerian Library Association. I obtained my B.L.S in 2007 with Second Class (Upper Division) as well as MLS degree in 2014 both from the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. After my National Youth Service Corps in 2008, I joined the services of the Usmanu Danfodiyo University Sokoto, working as a Graduate Assistant in the University Library. I was promoted from Graduate Assistant to Assistant Lecturer in 2011, from Assistant Lecturer to Lecturer I in 2016 and currently, I am the Head, Information and Communication Technology of the University Library. I have been a paid up member of the NLA since 2006 and I joined the Internet Librarian, Nigerian Computer Society in 2016 and also registered with Internet Society in January 2017. 

I served as an editorial member of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria NALISS Search Light from 2004 - 2006. I have attended numerous conferences, seminars and workshops that have kept me abreast of the current trends in Librarianship. Some of the training programmes I attended recently were Continuous Professional Development Training for Academic Librarians at University of Pretoria, South Africa from Feb-March, 2016, Elsevier Science Direct Users training (2013,2014) at UDUS; Research4Life Train the Trainers (ITOCA) (2010) at BUK; Transforming Nigerian Libraries into Effective 21st Century Information Unit with ICT (2009) in Lagos; Acquisition and Management of e-Library for Librarians in Public Tertiary Institutions (2014) at KADSU; etc.

Furthermore, I have organised many trainings and workshops on Information Literacy for Staff and Students of my institution. I love pulling researchers close to me to improve their digital literacy skills.
