The Imperative Of Literature Search For Research In Nigeria

  • EC Madu


The paper examined the necessity for the use of the Literature to support research-whether in an educational setting or within industry. Using the literature to support research involves much more than a single search, the thought and preparation before hand is a vital part of the process while the problem of obtaining, recording, reading and citing the literature can be as daunting as the search itself. The paper while advancing reasons for literature search described how the library can assist in literature search. It finally discussed the various approaches and levels of search especially on the web and the problems researchers are most likely to encounter.

Keywords: Research, Literature Search, Nigeria.
