Abstract

A self-constructed questionnaire titled “Librarians Attitudes to Computerised Information Systems (LACIS)” was administered to evaluate the perception of Librarians at the Kenneth Dike Library, University of Ibadan on the use of computerised information system. Based on a four-point Lickert scale, descriptive and inferential statistics were used in combination with t-test (X2) to test for differences between groups. All the hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The analysis of the data collected revealed that age, sex, current usage of computer and experience (or any of the parameters combined) have no significant influence on Librarians' attitudes to the use of Computerized Information Systems. It is thus concluded that Librarians currently using computers to carry out their assignments and those not using computers in their daily work have positive attitude towards the use of Computerized Information Systems.
