  The role of libraries have change from that of collection development and organization of library materials to an information support personnel and an access point to relevant and timely resources. Application of computer to library services has changed library roles and operations with the last decade in Nigeria. This study, therefore assessed the attitudes of sectional heads and library staff to the use of information technologies in first generation university libraries in south-western Nigeria. The selected universities were Kenneth Dike library (K.D.L ), University of Ibadan; Hezekiah Oluwasanmi library (H.O.L ), Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-ife and the University library (ULAG) , University of Lagos, Lagos, Nigeria. The library staffs were categorized into three groups; professional, paraprofessional and junior staff, one-stage random sampling was used to sample 50% of the respondents in each category. In all, 80 respondents were chosen and structured questionnaires were used to collect the data. Descriptive statistics was used for analysis. The study revealed the level of automation of each library. None of them is fully automated, though most of the library staff in the three universities had some basic knowledge about information technologies but only few can practically work with the facilities. At ULAG, CD rom was rarely used while computers were made available for use occasionally; e-mail services were used regularly. At HOL, computer were used regularly while CD rom and fax machine were been used occasionally. On-line public access catalogue, computer and fax machine were used regularly at KDL, while CD-rom database and electronic-mail (e-mail) services were occasionally used. It should be noted that most library staff in 3 university libraries rarely used library database searching. Lack of fund for proper maintenance and adequate IT training of library staff were major problems of the use of information technology. In conclusion, information technology usage should be made compulsory for every library staff so that all will be involved at every aspect for more efficiency and a positive change of attitude in the library. There should also be more resource sharing and co-operative lending services among these university libraries.

A total number of 120 questionnaires were administered to 60 boarding students and 60 day students. Among many of the information collected were personal characteristics of the students, assessment of students` reading habit and the influence of student reading on their academic performance Results and discussion were presented using frequency counts, percentages. Pearson correlation analysis and T-test were used to test the hypothesis. The study revealed almost equal percentages of male and female students in all the secondary schools selected and they were mostly between the ages of 11-15 years. Most of the boarding students read regularly because they have scheduled time for reading in their curriculum, they sometimes use library and library books. Day students read occasionally especially during examination. in their academic performances, boarders are above average while day students are below average. The students affirmed that reading has positive influence on academic performance. Environmental influence, parental influence, pair pressure, school curriculum and teachers influence are some of the factors militating against better reading habits. Parents and teachers alike are encouraged to train the mind of our youth towards reading and reduce their home and school chores.
