Utilisation of Resources As Correlates of Undergraduates’ Academic Achievement in Cataloguing and Classification in Library Schools in Southern Nigeria

Abstract

Cataloguing and classification is still a compulsory course in library and Information Schools in Nigeria. Despite the importance of the courses in library profession and schools, it was observed from educators and students that there is apathy for the course in library schools. Some graduates in library and information science are not interested to work in cataloguing section of the library and information centres in Nigeria. Also, some undergraduates record poor academic achievement in cataloguing and classification courses which enable them not to graduate at the end of their programme. This could likely be due to non provision or not utilising basic resources in teaching and learning processes. Survey research design of correlational type would be adopted in the study. Final year students and lecturers teaching cataloguing and classification would be used for the study. Questionnaire and observation schedule will be used to collect data for the study. Descriptive and inferential statistics will be used to analyse collected data. Summary, conclusion and recommendations would be made for the study.
