Date of this Version



This study examined research support services in three selected African Universities. The study is a mixed-method research that employed descriptive design. Three African Universities were selected to participate in the study. These are the universities of Nairobi, Kenya, University of Pretoria, South Africa and University of Nigeria, Nsukka. Online questionnaire, checklist and interview were used sequentially for data collection. Percentages and narratives were used for data presentation. Findings show that university libraries offer research support services in form of management of institutional repositories, free internet services and implementing originality checks on completed research works amongst others. The study concluded that University Libraries in Africa offer various forms of services to support research. However, in some universities, these services may be grouped under headings other than research support such as Online services.
