Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln


Date of this Version




The study investigated library services provision on academic performance of nursing undergraduates in selected universities in South West Nigeria. A proportionate random sampling technique used to select three hundred and four (304) nursing undergraduates in the three selected universities and the response rate was 82.24%. The instrument for data collection was the questionnaire which was administered to the respondents. The data were analysed using simple percentage and frequency tables of SPSS. The finding shows that majority of the nursing undergraduates are frequent library users, they are aware of the availability of the library services provision and the services enabled them to perform well academically. Acquisition services have the positive influence on their academic performance. It was recommended that libraries should create more awareness of their services among students by embarking on more innovative and restructuring of those services; library should encourage students to ask library staff for assistance and use several library materials.
