Abstract

This study investigated the relationship between Internet and library classification as determinants of students utilisation of information resources in University libraries. A structured questionnaire designed by the researcher titled “Internet and Library Classification as Determinants of Students Utilisation of Information Resources Questionnaire (ILCDUIRQ)” was used to collect the needed data. This was a four point Likert format comprising 28 items for the independent variable and 24 items for the dependent variable. Copies of the questionnaire were administered to the students and data were collected and analysed using Pearson Product Moment Correlation. The result was that Internet and library classification have significant positive relationships with students utilisation of information resources in university libraries. It was recommended among other things that Universities should ensure that their libraries are computerised and subscribed to Internet regularly, and that other resources should be well-classified to give students easy access to information resources.
