Reading Culture in An African University: Problems And Prospects

OO Oyewumi, AS Ebijuwa

Abstract


This paper examined if undergraduates of African universities have reading culture or not. To elicit the necessary information, a questionnaire was randomly distributed to 200 students from 100 – 500 level and a response rate of 100% was achieved. Using simple percentage response rate to analyze the data, the results showed that only 21% of the respondents have poor reading culture, while majority of them (59.5%) read for interest only. The paper therefore recommended ways by which librarians; lecturers and parents can encourage undergraduates to read, to improve and to inculcate good reading culture.
