The study aims at investigating the need for training and methods involved in information technology in the government‐owned oil industries – Nigeria National Petroleum Company (NNPC) – with particular reference to the Warri Refining and Petrochemical Company (WRPC) and the Petroleum Training Institute (PTI).
In seeking solutions to the problems raised five research questions were formulated. The population consisted of the library staff, and the method of data collection was through interview.
The results, amongst others, revealed that the commonly used training method is the internal consultancy method.
Makes modest recommendations that, if implemented, could benefit the librarians in the Nigerian oil industry from improved training, which will in turn benefit not only their users, but also the industry as a whole.
