Abstract

This paper discussed the Utilization of Newspapers by students of College of Developmental Studies (CDS) in Covenant University. The research was carried out using the stratified random sampling method and a questionnaire was designed and administered to one thousand students out of which 840 were filled, returned and found usable. The objective of the paper was to find out the purpose of newspaper utilization and how often the students read newspapers amongst others. The study shows that most of the students read newspapers to keep abreast of information that has to do with entertainment, education and current affairs. It is therefore paramount that the library place important emphasis on the acquisition and organization of newspapers.
