Abstract

The study sought to find out secondary sources of law undergraduate law students cite in their research projects. The study further sought to determine most frequently cited sources as well as their availability in faculty of law libraries in Anambra and Enugu States of Nigeria. Five research questions guided the study. Survey research design was adopted for the study. A total of 543 projects were used for the study. Checklist and interview were the instrument for data collection. Data collected were analysed using descriptive statistics of frequencies and percentages to answer research questions 1,2 and 3. Responses from the law librarians in research questions 4 and 5 were qualitatively analysed. The result of the analysis revealed that most of the information sources cited were not available in the four law libraries studied. Challenges facing law librarians in the provision and availability of these resources were highlighted. The study also made recommendations that will enhance the availability and utilisation of these information sources in faculty of law libraries in Anambra and Enugu States of Nigeria were recommended.
