THE IMPACT OF LIBRARY RESOURCES ON SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT

THE IMPACT OF LIBRARY RESOURCES ON SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT

CHAPTER ONE
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
1.1 Introduction
1.2 Background of the Study
Globally, a strong library programme that is adequately staffed, resourced and funded can lead to higher student achievement(Crawford, 2015). Also a strong computer network connecting the library’s resources to the classroom and laboratories has an influence on students’ achievement. Libraries can make a positive difference to students’ self-esteem, confidence, independence and sense of responsibility in regard to their own learning (Lonsdale, 2003).

Spreadbury and Spiller (1999) in a survey showed the situation of library use between state and independent schools. The study examined an interesting issue concerning the differences in provision of library services between state and independent schools. The study determined that only 7% of children in the UK attended independent state schools and their performance in terms of examination results was generally better than that of the other 93%. This might have been due to various factors including the amount of education provided and the degree of parental support given to their pupils. The library association’s 1997 survey of UK
secondary schools, found that in many respects library provision was better in
independent schools, particularly where funding was sufficient. For instance, 36% of
independent schools had a budget of more than 10 pound per pupil, compared to only
6% in state schools.
Spreadbury and Spiller (1999) came up with the findings which showed that
students’ access to libraries was very much limited.They only had to use libraries
during break time and lunch hours whereas, during this timemany other interactions
took place. In some cases libraries were used as meeting rooms. Moreover, the
library staffs were very few; asa result, in state schools it became difficult to open the
library when students wanted to use them. In their study, they also compared state schools and independent schools in the use of library; whereby theycame up with the
results which showedthat in state schools,more pupils used public librariescompared
to students in independent schools due to geographical location from their homes to
school. Most students were found to live very faraway from schools.

Moruf (2015) showed the situation of library use by secondary schools students in
Akinyele local government area of Oyostate. The study further determined that
functional libraries were available in some schools, especially private schools
andthere were also libraries in most public schools but they were non-functional. The
sources of funding in private school libraries were mainly through students levy.
Moreover the level of government intervention in funding school libraries in
Oyostate was low which resulted into libraries not being properly utilized in public
schools due to inadequate resources, poor funding and lack of adequate provision for
school library development.
