ACCESSIBILITY AND USE OF LIBRARY RESOURCES AND SERVICES OF THE MEDICAL LIBRARY

Abstract:

 This paper reports the findings of a survey study undertaken to ascertain access and use of library resources and services by customers of the Medical Library, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaha. It reveals the type of information resources preferred by the customers, resources, age distribution, sources facilitating search, customers’ perception of the different types of resources and the frequency to which the resources were put to use.
 Data gathered reveal that customers are highly satisfied with the services available because of accessibility, availability and relevance of the resources to the programmes offered by the faculty- However, customers solicit extension of working hours, expansion of the current sitting capacities in all branches of the Medical libraries to accommodate more customers and the completion of the library project at the clinical section of the medical school.
