Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln



The importance of information to manufacturing industries is explored in this research. Survey research was carried out on 20 manufacturing industries in two states of Nigeria. Two hundred and fifty 250 questionnaires were distributed. The findings indicate that 95 percent of the employees rely heavily on their colleagues and information generated internally for their daily information needs. Formal library services such as current awareness, reference, and SDI services are offered in these industries, but employees rarely use these services.
