Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln



The study was carried out to determine the organization of library resources for research productivity with emphasis on the challenges librarians encounter in Nigeria. Descriptive survey research design method was employed for this study. The sample for this study comprised of 250 librarians systematically and randomly selected from different libraries in Nigeria. The questionnaire was the only instrument used for data collection. Frequency counts, percentages, means, standard deviation and Krustal Walis were used to analyze the data collected. The study revealed that libraries organize their materials for research productivity to a large extent amidst the major challenges they encounter varying from lack of automation, poor funding to unavailability of technology. The study therefore concluded that organizing library resources is very needful for effective research since the library is one major source of information for researchers. Workable recommendations were also made
