|Abstract:||This research work investigated the influence of gender differences on usage patterns of electronic information sources among undergraduates in Nigeria. The study adopted a descriptive survey research design. The population was made up of randomly selected undergraduate students of Ekiti State University (EKSU) and University of Ibadan (UI). Data were generated through the use of questionnaire designed to elicit responses from respondents and analysed using descriptive statistics method of frequency counts and percentages. However, out of five hundred (500) copies of questionnaire administered, four hundred and twenty one (421) were returned which represents 84.2% response rate for the study. Findings revealed that there is no basis for gender differentiation in the use of electronic information sources as gender gap in electronic resources usage appeared negligible. However, it was recommended that university libraries in Nigeria should continue to give equal opportunities to both sexes in term of training and orientation on the use of e-resources among other recommendations.|
