Abstract

Job satisfaction may not necessarily be contingent upon availability, accessibility and utilization of facilities, especially technology. This is why this study investigated the relationship among information technology (IT) accessibility, utilization and job satisfaction by academic staff of Covenant University, Nigeria. Ex-post factor research design was adopted. Using the stratified proportionate random sampling technique, data were gathered from the academic staff in the three colleges and the University Library using a questionnaire tagged information technology and job satisfaction questionnarie ITJSQ (α=0.72). 175 questionnaire were retrieved from the respondents out of 220 administered to a population of 300 respondents. This represent 58.3% response rate. The study found that the IT resources with high accessibility levels were internet (x=3.62; SD=1.13) computers (x=3.61;SD=0.92) CD-ROM and Online databases (x=2.72;SD=1.32) printers (x=2.51;SD=1.41) audio- visuals (x=2.46;SD=1.29) and local area network (x=2.26;SD=1.48).It also revealed high IT utilization levels in internet (x=3.46;SD=1.07) computers (x=3.17;SD=1.05) photocopiers(x=2.63;SD=1.07) Online/CD-ROM databases (x=2.47;SD=1.23)audio-visuals (x=2.25;SD=1.27) and printers (x=2.19;SD=1.43). IT accessibility and utilization by the academic staff had no significant relationship with job satisfaction (r=-0.071;p>0.05) and (r=0.102;P>0.05) respectively. The study recommends improved access and use of IT resources, efficient feedback mechanism, promotion of academic culture and participatory management
