This paper discusses the automation of University of Lagos library records using The Information Navigator Library Software (TINLIB) and now Graphical Library Automation Systems (GLAS) software with some analysis of the cataloguing module. It discusses the rationale behind the change from TINLIB to GLAS by assessing the features, strength and weakness of both software. Plan for future development is discussed and Nigeria university libraries using the same software are advised to form themselves into consortium for resource – sharing. Agreement for regular servicing and maintenance of software between vendors and libraries is recommended.
