Author: Mathilda Okodero & Dr. Caroline Mutwiri

Abstract

This paper presents a study done at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture (JKUAT) and Mount Kenya University (MKU), Kenya, intending to establish academic staff’s ICT skills and its effect in the adoption of the software. The sample encompass the responses of academic staff at JKUAT and MKU. Descriptive survey design has been employed through questionnaires. There seems to be a low uptake of RMS among academic staff, the general awareness is high but they lack the skills needed to navigate the tools. Librarians need to do a lot in terms of training and support. Data gathered from this study can be used as a basis for a more intense comparative survey in different universities in Africa. This is the first survey carried out on the academic staff.
