The article investigates factors that may make the Nigeria Virtual Library Project a myth or reality. Questionnaires were used for data collection, using 22 University Librarians in federal universities as respondents, and 14 (64%) University Librarians completed the questionnaires. Three indicators were used to determine the myth or reality of evolving virtual libraries in Nigeria: availability of information infrastructures, human capacity building programmes in leT, and level of funding of university libraries. Nine (64%)ofthe libraries have relevant information infrastructures, 12 (86%) are involved in human capacity building programmes, 11 (79%) affirm that the level of funding for university libraries is low. The article concludes that evolution of virtual libraries is feasible and real in Nigeria.
