Abstract

This study investigates the awareness and use of electronic resources among the faculty members of Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti (ABUAD). Structured questionnaire method was used to elicit data from the faculty members of the university. Out of 120 questionnaires given out, 86 were returned. The study reveals that most of the faculty members are aware and use the different electronic resources but a third of the respondents are not aware of some of the subscribed databases. Also the faculty members use the electronic resources for research, teaching and also recommend these resources to students. Also the faculty members agreed that the electronic resources are very useful. The findings will be useful for librarians, the university management and faculty members on the need for increase on information literacy for maximum awareness and use of most especially the subscribed e-resources.
