ABSTRACT

This study examined the use of Electronic Information Resources [EIRs] for Research Output of Librarians in Federal Universities in South East Nigeria. The study was guided by six research question and six hypotheses. The population of the study consists of 219 professional librarians drawn from six federal universities in the South East Nigeria. The size of the population was manageable hence there was no sampling. Data were collected using a questionnaire which were validated by five experts. A reliability index of 0.83 was obtained. The data was analyzed using frequency counts, percentages, mean scores and standard deviation. The hypotheses were analyzed using t-test technique and significance was determined at a level of 0.05. Findings revealed that there was no significance difference in the research output of Practicing Librarian and Library and Information Science Educators. There is no significant difference between the mean responses of practicing librarian and Librarians educators on the extent of use of electronic information resources (EIR) for research purposes of librarian in the Federal Universities in South-East, Nigeria.  There is no significant difference between the mean responses of practicing Librarians and Librarian educators on the frequency of use of electronic information resources (EIR) for research outputs of librarians. There is no significant difference between the mean responses of practicing Librarians and Librarian educators on the skills required for the use of Electronic Information Resources (EIR) for research outputs of librarians. There were challenges identified by the study which are limited restrictions from vendors, erratic power supply, lack of technical know-how, among others. In other to address the identified challenges the study suggested provision of unlimited access to computer and internet services, provision of steady power supply, user education on information retrieval strategies, provision of adequate band width as well as acquisition of electronic resources facilities among others.
