Mentioned below are research works carried out and completed by me:
1. Co-Researcher – Sote, Adetoun. Influence of Self-efficacy, Perceived Ease of Use and Perceived Usefulness on E-library Usage by Academic Staff in Nigerian Universities
This study examined the availability and use of electronic library by academic staff in Nigerian Universities with emphasis on the Influence of self-efficacy, perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness on e-library usage by the academic staff in Nigerian Universities with emphasis on five selected Universities in Ogun State. The study established the fact that self-efficacy and perceived ease of use have direct positive influence on academic staff e-library usage while perceived usefulness does not have a direct positive influence on academic library usage by the academic staff.
- Co-Researcher – Olaojo, P.O. Availability, Use and Performance of Electronic Library in a Nigerian University: A Case Study of Tai Solarin University, Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, Nigeria.
The study focused on the availability, use and performance of electronic library with particular emphasis on TAI Solarin University of Education e-Library. It discussed the range of collection of e-resources available for use, and how much the electronic library is able to meet the teaching, learning and research needs of the students. The study revealed e-Books, charts, e-journals, e-magazines/newspapers, internet/e-mail facility and multimedia resources as e-resources commonly available for students use, even though the students do not make regular use of these resources, which may be due to lack of appropriate skills to use this facility. The study further revealed that the students rely very much on the electronic library mainly for textbooks search and articles search which is majorly due to the fact that textbooks and articles are very much relevant to the academic and research activities of the students. The study also revealed that the students are satisfied with overall performance of the electronic library, most especially in terms of value of services, access to information, response time, ease of use and quantity of collection. The study affirmed the adequacy and relevance of the electronic library to the academic and research needs of the students as well as the satisfaction of students with the electronic library and recommendation were made on the need to improve on the e-library collection through the provision of more e-resources that are relevant, and up to date at and affordable rate for the students while at the same time students should be given adequate training and orientation on how to maximize the use of the e-resources available through the electronic library.
3. Co-Researcher – Bolarinwa, Omolara M. Availability and Utilisation of Audiovisual and Electronic Resources by Distance Learning Students in Nigerian Universities: A case study of National Open University of Nigeria.

This study focused on the availability, use and performance of electronic library with particular emphasis on TAI Solarin University of Education e-Library. It discussed the range of collection of e-resources available for use, and how much the electronic library is able to meet the teaching, learning and research needs of the students. The questionnaire was used as the major instrument of data collection. The study revealed e-Books, charts, e-journals, e-magazines/newspapers, internet/e-mail facility and multimedia resources as e-resources commonly available for students use, even though the students do not make regular use of these resources.

10 *Web resources for Teaching and Learning in Schools.
The article presented brief description of web resources for teaching and learning in schools and are available for free. The basic features of the resources were highlighted while the url addresses of the listed resources were also given.
11. Co-Researcher – Ajayi, A.J. *Environmental and Institutional Factors Influence on Internet Use By the Undergraduates in Selected Federal Universities in South West, Nigeria.
The study investigated the influence of environmental and Institutional factors on Internet use by undergraduate students in two selected universities in South West, Nigeria. The study used undergraduate students in Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) and Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Nigeria. The study revealed reliable internet connection, adequate infrastructural facilities, Internet policy, and ICT development policy as major environmental factors that influenced the use of internet among the students in the selected institutions while inadequate access points for internet use, availability of adequate computer accessories, high cost of internet use, and adequate availability of computers connected to the Internet were found to be the major institutional factors that influenced the use of internet among the undergraduate students in the selected institutions. The study further revealed that environmental factors significantly contribute positively to Internet use while institutional factors do not significantly influence internet use among undergraduate students in Nigerian universities.
10. Co-Researcher – Elaturoti, D.F. *Assessment of Resource Inputs and Service Delivery in School Library Media Centres in Nigeria: Implications for Basic and Post-Basic Education
The study investigated the state of resource inputs provision and service delivery in SLMCs in Nigeria. The study generally revealed poor state of quality and quantity of resource inputs such as accommodation, learning resource, personnel, and ICT resource into SLMCs in Nigeria. Specifically, the study established a poor state accommodation and space provision in SLMCs in state government owned and privately owned schools in Nigeria. With regards to human resource inputs into SLMCs, the study established a poor state of qualified personnel inputs into SLMCs in Nigeria especially in federal and state government owned schools though privately owned schools fared better in this area. Furthermore, the availability of unbalanced state of learning resources that consists mainly print media was established as the predominant situation in SLMCs in Nigeria while the dearth of computerized library and Internet facility was discovered in SLMCs in government owned schools in Nigeria. The study recommended the need for government and proprietors/proprietresses of schools in Nigeria to be more committed to the various guidelines on the minimum requirements for SLMCs to ensure better learning and teaching environment in schools.
11. Co-Researcher – Adesina, K. and Osunrinade, O.A. *Investigating the Pattern of ICT Utilisation for Science Teaching in Federal Unity Schools in Nigeria Using Kumar’s, Subramaniam and Mukherjee Model Approach

The study revealed presentation software, online tutoring, and interactive CDs as ICT facilities being commonly utilised for science teaching in FUSs in Nigeria. The study further revealed a significant relationship between purpose of ICT utilisation and degree of ICT facilities utilisation and established that the pattern of ICT utilisation for science teaching in FUSs in Nigeria is at variance with Kumar’s et. al. model.
