Abstract

Social media are significantly defining the communication landscape in the twenty-first century. They are also playing an essential role on how children of school age spend their time. In this study, the researcher examined the relationship between level of involvement in social media and library use. The survey research design was used for the study. A sample of 306 undergraduates were recruited from Federal University, Otueke. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyse the result. The result showed that high involvement in social media use correlate low involvement in library use. On the other hand, low involvement in social media use significantly correlate high library use. The theoretical, practical and scholarly contributions of these results have been explored.
