AJIBOLA SUNMADE GBOTOSHO

Abstract


In most academic institutions, particularly in the third world countries, adequate attention is not paid to the library. This study, therefore, focuses on the growth and development of library infrastructure, using Osun State University, Osogbo as a case study. With the adoption of participatory observation method, the research points out the evolution of libraries in Nigeria. It also interrogates the infrastructural growth and development of a multi-campus university. The findings include the efforts of both the state government and the university authorities as regards effective running of the libraries in the libraries in the six- campuses. The study concludes that library is the heart of every academic institution and must be given serious attention.
