Library Mobile Technologies Use and Students's Information Needs Satisfaction in Universities in South-West Nigeria
In today's information age driven by information and communication technology, there are many alternatives available to university students in the way they access information to satisfy their information needs. Today, Nigerian university students are not visiting the libraries regularly like in the 1980s when there was no prevalence of mobile devices and internet. University students recourse to other sources, some of which may not give them quality information, for their information needs. University libraries therefore need to up their game by taking advantage of students' use of mobile electronic devices in providing library services to them. The main purpose of this study is to investigate library mobile technologies use and information needs satisfaction of students in South-West Nigeria Universities. The Study adopts survey research design. Structured questionnaires will be administered to samples of postgraduate and undergraduate students in some selected universities in South-West Nigeria. The research questions will be analysed using frequency distribution table and mean. However the research hypotheses will be analyzed using one sample t-test to determine the t value or strength of the relationship between the variables at 0,05 level of significance.
