Abstract

The study surveyed ICT literacy skills as correlate of information utilization among undergraduate students of University of Lagos, Nigeria. It was found that the level of ICT literacy skills among the undergraduate students of the University of Lagos was relatively high. Majority of the students in the University of Lagos indicated that they acquired the ICT literacy skills mostly through self-study (users’ guide), formal education, by trial and error method, as well as assistance from their colleagues. There was no significant relationship between ICT literacy skills and information use by the undergraduate students. Likewise, no significant relationship existed between the acquisition of ICT literacy skills and use of information by the undergraduate students.The study recommended among others that the university should periodically organize ICT literacy programmes to improve on students’ ICT literacy skills for effective accessibility of the available ICT facilities like the internet and e-resources for productive information use.
