Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Because the face-to-face form of learning was temporarily suspended at the start of the pandemic, the way learners learned prior to the appearance of coronavirus 2019 (Covid-19) was severely impacted. When the pandemic was at its worst, most developed countries switched to online education, while most developing countries' schools were shut down entirely. A lack of web resources in those developing countries was one of the reasons for this. Internet library resources have been found to have the potential to improve teaching and learning, according to the literature. However, no empirical research has been done in Nigeria to examine the impact of internet library resources on the achievement of grade three students in Physics. As a result, this study was necessitated. A quantitative research strategy drove this study, which used a simple repeated measures research design. The study included 53 senior secondary two physics students who were chosen at random from secondary schools in Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area. Data were collected using a Physics Achievement Test (PAT) that had been face and content validated as well as trial tested. The internal consistency dependability of the PAT items was .88. Mixed design repeated analysis of variance was used to analyze the data. It was discovered that learners' exposure to electronic library materials had a substantial impact (p < .05) on their Physics achievement. As a result, it was suggested that secondary school students should be given enough exposure to internet library resources.
