Creator Eni, Nelly N.
 
Subject Library resources, library facilities, use of library
 
Description Adequacy and purpose of use of library resources by teachers and students of selected secondary schools in Oshodi Local Government Area of Lagos State was surveyed. Questionnaire and interview were used to elicit data. Findings showed that students and teachers made inadequate use of library resources; students used the library resources to do their classroom assignments, copy notes and seek storybooks and newspapers; the library does not satisfy the information need of the users; the libraries lacked qualified librarians and user education. Recommendations include stocking the libraries with materials that appeal to students and teachers, engagement of qualified librarians to man the libraries, and teaching of library user education/instruction in schools.
