The use of technology is changing how things are done, including work in tertiary institutions where the teaching and learning process needed to be improved significantly. Recognizing that Repository is a crucial instrument for aiding academic activities in Nigeria’s tertiary institutions, the administrators of these institutions of learning have invested extensively in developing Repository services in their schools for a number of years. Repository’s services have had a significant impact on university culture, organization, and teaching and learning methods. The Repository has connected computers all around the world.

According to Emeka and Nyeche (2016), the Repository is now a global entity whose nature is difficult to describe.

The main advantage of this new type of information resource is the almost infinite abundance of information resources that are publicly available and accessible to hundreds of millions of individuals simultaneously in many regions of the world (Kumar & Kaur 2006). Furthermore, Amaoge and Igwebuike (2016) consider that the Repository has become an indisputable benefit in terms of learning, teaching, and research in education. The usage of Repository in tertiary institutions is an intriguing prospect, especially when the rocky landscape is a big hindrance to the vast majority of people obtaining information.

According to Fasae and Aladeniyi (2012), for developing countries like Nigeria to prosper and achieve their economic and social goals, they must be fully prepared to enhance their institutions.


Students at Nigerian tertiary institutions use the Repository for academic purposes such as writing papers, looking for solutions to queries, and communicating with peers about homework. However, time spent in activities that include “surfing the web” may take time away from reading, studying, and completing homework. This may have a short-term negative impact on academic achievement. As a result, the research looked at how effective Repository services are and how they affect students’ academic success.


The primary goal of this research is to determine how Repository is used and how it affects student achievement.

The study’s specific objectives are to:

Examine the impact of using the Repository on students’ academic performance.

Investigate the issues that are preventing the student from accessing the Repository.

iii. Find out how frequently students utilize the Repository.


To guide this investigation, the following research questions were formulated:

i. What is the percentage of students who use the Repository?


ii. How helpful is the Repository to students in their academic pursuits?


Which Repository service is the most popular?


iv. Do the services provided by the Repository have an impact on students’ academic performance?


What issues do students have when accessing Repository services?


The research could be valuable to both students and the institution. Students should be able to see the value of repository in their education thanks to the excellent input received from respondents. Institutes might invest more in developing repositories in order to improve their students’ academic performance and deliver better results. It’s worth noting that the usefulness of internet resources is determined by how effective, sufficient, and accessible they are to students and users. The study will also go into the many types of repository facilities and how students might use them to better their academic achievement.


The self-report criterion has many drawbacks. More objective repository measures should be used in future studies. All ordinary undergraduate students at the University of Abuja in Nigeria are included in this study. These students range in level from 100 to 400, with 500 level law included. As a result, students at the centre for distance learning and continuing education (CDL and CE) as well as sandwich students are excluded from the study. Furthermore, no gender is excluded from the investigation. At all levels of study, it includes both male and female undergraduates.


A repository is a location or container where vast amounts of something are kept.

Performance refers to the outcomes and evaluations obtained by analyzing samples.

Undergraduates are students enrolled in colleges or universities.

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) refers to computer-based tools that people use to work with an organization’s, government agency’s, or individual’s information and communication processing needs. It encompasses both software and hardware devices used in information processing.

A university is an educational institution that provides instruction, examination, or both to students in a variety of advanced learning fields, awards degrees in a variety of faculties, and often includes colleges and other comparable institutions.
