ABSTRACT

The study investigated the management of university electronic libraries in North-east Nigeria in 11 public universities in the zone. Six (6) research questions and four (4) hypotheses guided the conduct of the study. The four hypotheses were formulated and tested at zero point zero five (0.05) level of significance. Relevant literature related to the research questions were reviewed. The study adopted descriptive survey research design. The target population for the study are all the librarians in the eleven (11) public universities in North-East Nigeria totaling one hundred and sixty-six (166), There was no sampling since the whole population was used. A structured questionnaire titled “University Electronic Library Management Questionnaire (UELMQ)” was used as instrument for data collection, which was validated by experts in Library and Information Science and Measurement and Evaluation. The reliability of the instrument was .788 established using Cronbach Alpha formula. The instrument was administered personally and with the help of three research assistants. The data obtained from the survey were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Specifically, mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions while Z-test was used to test the hypotheses. Findings, of the result revealed that planning, organization, competence of the librarians and budget implementation were of high extent at the federal university libraries. Some challenges were encountered in the management of the university libraries under investigation. The study recommends that, the university libraries should implement university budgetary allocation focusing more on the ten percent statutory allocation from the university to the library, continue to sustain provision of electronic information resource through electronic libraries for teaching, learning and research, among other things.
