Research Question 3: What are the problems militating against RECON in NIALS
From table 4, it was obvious that NIALS Library experienced similar crises situations in the process of RECON such as inadequate funding of the project, erratic power supply, and frequent change in technology as established in literature.
Concerning the resolution of the problems, the study reveals that NIALS library was still battling with the problems though a separate generating set has been installed for the library and training and re-training of staff is in progress.
Based on the analysis of the scores obtained, it could be deduced that law reports, government publications, non-legal materials legislation and statutes, newspapers, loose leaf, indexes and abstracts and digests were the most available legal information resources to Postgraduate law students in NIALS Library.
Thus, the findings with regard to the provision of electronic resources and on-line legal databases provide a big challenge to NIALS library.
Therefore, a well articulated and sustained effort is required to provide the needed facilities in NIALS library to ease access to its resources.
