INFORMATION SERVICES PROVISION AND USERS’ SATISFACTION IN THE AGRICULTURE RESEARCH LIBRARIES IN NIGERIA

CHAPTER ONE

 INTRODUCTION 

Background to the study 
 In Nigeria, the need for agricultural information provision cannot be overemphasized. Nigeria is predominantly an agricultural country. In spite of the pre-eminent position of the petroleum sub-sector, the agricultural sector still plays major and significant role in the overall economic growth and development of the country. The positive contributions of agriculture to the economy were instrumental to sustaining economic growths and stability since independence in 1960. The bulk of food demand was satisfied from domestic output, thereby obviating the need to utilize foreign exchange on food importation. Eighty - one government and higher education agencies engaged in agricultural research in Nigeria in 2000, together they employed over 1,352 full time equivalent researchers and spend 3.6 billion naira in 1999 on agricultural research and development equivalent to $106 million in 1993 international prices (Nienke and Ayola 2004). However, the rate of growth and development of agricultural sector has in the recent past not been encouraging. A more important factor responsible for low agricultural production is related to the fact that researchers/lecturers, students, extension workers are not adequately provided with information services that would improve agricultural production. The published literature on agriculture and allied sciences is scattered over a variety of documents namely, books, journals, newsletters, internet, conference papers etc. Thus packaging the widely dispersed agricultural information is a challenge to library users. The necessity to sustaining agricultural production rest squarely on quality and effective information service provision. Agriculture research library remains a societal mechanism designed essentially for the provision of needed information to users for high quality productivity.
