Abstract

This article contributes to the body of knowledge on scholarly communication and effective utilisation of academic library information resources and services by Administrative and Professional Senior Members in public universities. The aim of the article was to ascertain the utilisation of information resources and services from the academic library system by Administrative and Professional Senior Members for their scholarly communication and work-related activities. A case study research design and sequential explanatory mixed method approach were adopted with Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) as the research site. Data for the study were collected through self-designed questionnaire using Google form questionnaires. The field data reveals that, Administrative and Professional Senior Members’ usage of academic library information resources and services for scholarly communication are minimal. This is due to lack of awareness as well as minimal skills and time to access and utilise them.
