The Impact of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Nigerian University Libraries

The study aimed at examining the impact of information and communication Technology (ICT) in library services in Nigeria with a case study of selected univerity libraries. The paper traces briefly the history of Library in Nigeria. The study adopted the descriptive survey method. The questionnaire was used as instrument for data collection. The data collected were analyzed with the use of tables and simple percentages. 
From the analysis of the data collected, it was found that the digital revolution driven by ICT innovation has transformed academic libraries fundamentally, it has impacted on every sphere of academic library. The academic libraries traditional role of information custodian has been reduced to that of being one of many information providers and finally ICT have changed library and information services globally of supporting these view Rana (2009) opines that ICT holds the key to the success of modernizing information services, not only does ICT introduces new ways of information handling, it also bring about change in the structure of information and its communication. The study shows that Inadequate ICT skilled professional Librarians, Inadequate provision of ICT training programmes, Inadequate Power supply and inadequate ICT 
infrastructures hinder the effective use of ICTs in libraries. Therefore, it was recommended that there should be massive injection of funds and financial assistance from both the Nigerian government and some  international donor agencies for the provision of ICT infrastructural facilities and training and retraining of librarians to enable them meet the standard of technology age for effective library services. This will result in the delivery of the effective information services and make it easily accessible to users.

Really poor

It has no regression Analysis or any of such. Too many typographical errors, I bought this for my project but ended up doing the project all by myself, it was grossly disappointing.
