Welcome Address

The increasingly competitive nature of the financial services sector makes intense demand of employees. Despite this, financial services organisations require their employees to develop themselves and upscale their skills as necessary requisites for career advancement and progression. This often creates a difficult challenge for working professionals who have time-bound deliverables that prevent them from engaging in worthwhile further studies or professional certification programmes, or even engaging in personal studies to hone their skills. This observation informed FITC to introduce its Virtual Library initiative, in furtherance of its mandate to build capacity in the Nigerian financial services sector and beyond.  

The FITC Virtual Library service, domiciled within the Pius Okigbo Library, was initiated to complement other human capacity development efforts at FITC. The service has three major components: the Pius Okigbo Library’s web-enabled catalogue, which allows patrons to view available resources from offsite locations; online databases (the EBSCOhost and other open access databases) which provide access to e-journals, e-books and other electronic publications, with some dating back to 1886; and FITC’s publications, where books published by FITC can be purchased.

We welcome you to register either as an individual member or a corporate member at the Pius Okigbo Library today, and let us support you to become a consummate professional.
