Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln



The research was conducted in southern Nigeria federal university libraries to identify the extent of ICT use for serials functions. A questionnaire was distributed to staff from the 11 federal university libraries in southern Nigeria. The results reveal that serials functions are still predominately manual, with ICT being more prominent in the serials public services and preservation functions; public services activities involving the use of ICT are mainly access to and retrieval of serials and article titles. It is recommended that university libraries should make a decision on whether to equip serials units with ICT facilities or have a systems unit where ICT-related operations will be carried out, including serials. University libraries should solicit aid from donor agencies for ICT hardware and software for serials functions.
