Kenneth Dike Library
|Abstract:||This paper is a study of the effect of economic depression on the growth of serials in Nigerian university libraries with particular reference to Kenneth Dike Library. The descriptive/survey method of research was adopted. The library's records were perused from 1980/81 session to 1991/92 session. It was discovered that as the library received reduced allocation from the university, the book vote decreased and the naira value diminished due to Structural Ajustment Programme (SAP). When the book votes eventually increased, only few journals titles could be purchased because the naira value had fallen drastically when compared with foreign currencies. The library narrowed down subscription to priority journals only.|
