EDUCATOR URGES STUDENTS NOT TO ABANDON LIBRARY FOR INTERNET

Osogbo, July 12, 2013 (NAN) A Tutor-General in Osun, Mr Kola Buhari, on Friday urged educators to rekindle the interest of students in the use of the library.

Buhari made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Osogbo.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that tutors-general are teachers promoted to the permanent secretary cadre in Osun.
According to Buhari, ``in as much as information technology has made learning easier, it has brought distraction to students.’’
Buhari decried the way many Nigerian students were concentrating on the entertainment aspect of the Internet.
He said modern day technology also had its robust value, saying that the educative packages should be the focus of students.
``It is our responsibility as stakeholders in education to let students realise that there is more to the Internet than social networking, dating and chatting.
``With the e-library package, students can still be with their electronic gadgets and learn.
``Many students do not even know that with the popular Google search engine, they can solve academic problems,’’ Buhari said.
He said the use of the Internet should not discourage the use of conventional libraries. ``Rather, students should use both.’’
Buhari also said that students should be properly tutored on the need to concentrate on reading physical books and online texts.
``The days of visiting libraries are not over’’, he stressed. (NAN)
