A resource person from the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND), Mr Linus C. Emeghara, has adjudged Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta’s E-Library facilities as the best among Tertiary Institutions in Ogun State.
He made this known during a-day workshop on EBSCOhost Database Training for MAPOLY staff at the E-library Center, which is a section of the Salawu Abiola Memorial Library of the Institution. Emeghara, who commended Management of the Polytechnic, stressed that, MAPOLY has more than twelve resources in e-books and journals covering all subjects and disciplines.
He stated that next to MAPOLY in e-library resources in Ogun State is Covenant University, as he advised members of staff to take advantage of the e-library facilities to improve on their researches, teaching and learning skills.
The Registrar, Mr. Emmanuel Adeleye, while addressing participants disclosed that, MAPOLY is investing huge amount of money to collaborate with agencies in training and retraining programmes for staff and urged them to justify the investment by reflecting on their respective schedule of duties.
Adeleye noted that recent focus of Management on Information Technology training for both academic and non academic staff is aimed at repositioning the institution for challenges ahead.
In his statement, while declaring the seminar open, the Acting Rector, Ayodeji Tella, appreciated TETFUND for its huge investment in educational development in Nigeria, especially in training and retraining.
He advised staff to take advantage of the training to improve and better the system.

Similarly, a 300KVA Generating Set funded by TETFUND 2013/14 Library Project intervention for Salawu Abiola Memorial Library was commissioned by the Ag. Rector, Ayodeji Tella.
