Abstract

The study examined the use of electronic resources by faculty members in Landmark University, Omu-Aran. It aimed at finding out level of awareness, frequency of access, motivations and constraints of electronic resources use among faculty members. The predictors of electronic resources use were also identified. Stratified sampling technique was used to select faculty members from various academic units within the university. A structured questionnaire was used to collect data from a sample of 109 faculty members. Frequencies and linear regression were used for data analyses. Findings revealed that faculty members use electronic resources for academic purposes. Having access to wide range of books and journals, increased access to current materials, and, to carryout research are the major motivations of electronic resources use by faculty members. The consequence of prolonged e-book reading and the need to be computer literate were identified as constraints of electronic resources use. The study recommends that user training should be frequently organized for better usage as well as stimulates the interest of users.
