ACQUISITION AND ORGANIZATION OF ELECTRONIC RESOURCES FOR INFORMATION SERVICE DELIVERY IN UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES IN SOUTH-SOUTH NIGERIA

CHAPTER ONE

 INTRODUCTION 

Background of the Study. 

 The manifestation of electronic resources has significantly transformed information handling and organization in Nigerian educational environments, as well as institution of higher education libraries in particular. For instance, if electronic resources are well organized for use, and all the facilities needed to make them accessible by users are provided, library patrons will have access to them, which will in turn help the librarians to provide adequate information service delivery to their patrons either remotely or otherwise. What then are electronic resources? Electronic resources (ER) may be defined as online information resources, which include bibliographic database, electronic reference and are accessible with computers. Electronic resources could be described as one of the various items termed special materials in libraries. They are non-book format and therefore are handled differently from the general books and journals in print format. Some of the common types are: indexes and abstracts, databases, full text aggregated, e-journal, e-books, reference databases (directories, dictionaries, encyclopedias, etc) numerical and statistical databases, images, E-audio/visual resources websites, CD-Rom, multimedia products (Kumar, 2008). In this research, the researcher adopts the definition put forward by IFLA (2012) which says that, electronic resources to materials that require computer access, or remotely via the internet. Introduction of electronic resources, and most importantly the internet, facilitates easy and quick access to information and makes the academic libraries more functional. Academic libraries are libraries in academic institutions that aids teaching and learning. They are established, maintained, and administered by a university to gather together the requests of its students and members of academic staff. University libraries are at the vanguard of providing information services to their individual communities which encompass students, lecturers, and researchers in order to support their teaching, learning and research needs. Higher education libraries are the heart or centres of institutions of higher learning where all academic activities revolve. University opined Patra (2013) are essential part of community that surrounds it. Its history, scope, and functions are fashioned and changed by many of the same forces that shape other types of institutions. Librarians need to recognize the changes that are taking place in the library, particularly the introduction of e-resources in the library collection. They need to use this knowledge to actively reshape the library. If libraries are not actively concerned in the reshaping, key principles from librarianship may wane in the electronic library environment. Certain investment must be made if the library is to emerge as a key factor in the changing environment.
