Faculty Members and E-Journals: The Case of Private Universities in Kumasi, Ghana
Boakye, Ernest
New Review of Academic Librarianship, v23 n4 p377-395 2017
The purpose of this study was to determine the level of awareness, accessibility, and use of electronic journals (E-journals) by the faculty members of Garden City University College (GCUC) and Christian Service University College (CSUC) in Kumasi, Ghana. The survey method was used with questionnaire as the data collection instrument. The study found that levels of awareness and use of E-journals were relatively high while accessibility was somewhat poor. Problems such as slow network, regular power-cuts, and unstable network were found to hinder access and use of E-journals. Therefore, adequate publicity, regular training, and provision of power generators were recommended by the study to solve the problems.
