This paper sets out to elicit the patterns of information storage and retrieval in Nigerian university libraries.
A descriptive survey method was adopted in looking at the various patterns of information storage and retrieval in Nigerian university libraries.
The findings of the research revealed that storage and retrieval devices such as computer hard disks, audio‐tapes, video‐tapes, video‐players, television, Internet, Xerox, database management systems, microforms, CD‐ROM, worm‐disk, magnetic‐optical disk, magnetic tapes, flat files, memory cards and many others are the various patterns through which information/data can be stored and retrieved in Nigerian university libraries. This has brought about widespread technological resources for effective and efficient routine library operations.
This research and its findings will assist Nigerian university libraries and beyond to know how best to care for their information/data storage and retrieval, and ensure that adequate facilities are provided and experts/librarians are trained in such contexts, so as to meet changing trends in the world and in order to satisfy users' information needs.
