A questionnaire was used to gather data from the academic staff of the Delta State University, Abraka, Nigeria. The results revealed that more male staff that use the Internet, that library staff are the predominant users in the university, and that access is primarily through cybercafes, rather than at home or in the office. The majority of the staff use the Internet for e-mail, research information and academic material, and to communicate with colleagues. The Internet has been beneficial for quick access to current research information. The study recommends that the university set up an Internet center for the staff, with formal training provided.
