dc.description.abstract With funding from the MacArthur Foundation, ITHAKA (JSTOR) has collaborated with two Nigerian university libraries – Bayero University, Kano and University of Ibadan, Ibadan – to develop digital collections. “The purpose of this digitization project is to build capacity within the academic library at two major Nigerian academic institutions, to enable the digitization and dissemination of a modest number of historically significant collections and documents archived at these institutions, and to further expand awareness of these important primary source collections to scholars and students in Nigeria as well as those across Africa and beyond” [(Masinde & Rajan, (2011)].This paper attempts to examine the objectives and terms of collaboration as articulated in the signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) between ITHAKA and the institutions, the management of the collaboration, the Decapod technology system deployed for the digital labs to execute the digitization project, policy issues and institutional capacity building, and the implications for the future of digital collections, archiving/preservation in Nigerian universities. en_ZA
