Abstract:

Katika utafiti huu tunalenga kuchanganua grafiti ya rnaktaba za Chuo Kikuu cha Nairobi nehini Kenya tukiongozwa na nadharia ya Utarnbulisho. Utafiti huu ulihusu grafiti ya rnaktaba kwenye dawati za kusornea, katika maktaba za Jomo Kenyatta Memoria! Library (JKML), Chiromo na Umatibabu. Utafiti huu ulikuwa unachunguza haipothesia tatu kwarnba; a) Maudhui ya ngono na rnasorno yanatawala katika grafiti ya rnaktaba za Chuo Kikuu cha Nairobi, b) Sheng ndiyo lugha inayopendelewa sana katika grafiti ya rnaktaba za Chuo Kikuu cha Nairobi na c) Mazungurnzo, lugha ya kitarnathali na ukiushi ndiyo rnitindo ambayo inatumika sana katika grafiti ya maktaba za Chuo Kikuu cha Nairobi. Data ilikusanywa kutoka kwenye madawati ya maktaba tatu za Chuo Kikuu cha Nairobi. Kutokana na data hii, sampuli yajumbe 100 ilichaguliwa iii kuchanganuliwa. Data ilichanganuliwa kwa kutumia rnajedwali na vielelezo vya nambari na maelezo ya matokeo kujadiliwa. Utafiti huu umegawanywa katika sura sita. Sura ya kwanza ni utangulizi wa utafiti na katika sura ya pili turnejadili kwa kina suala zima la grafiti. Katika sura ya tatu tumeainisha maudhui na sura ya nne tukaainisha lugha zilizotumika katika grafiti ya maktaba. Tumechunguza rnitindo ya lugha katika sura ya tano. Mwishowe tukatoa muhtasari, hitimisho, ehangamoto za utafiti na mapendekezo katika sura ya sita. Matokeo ya uchanganuzi yameonyesha kuwa maudhui ya ngono na masomo yametawala katika grafiti ya maktaba; hivyo kuunga mkono haipothesia yetu ya kwanza. Pia, rnatokeo yameonyesha kuwa lugha ya Kiingereza ndiyo lugha ambayo inapendelewa sana katika uandishi wa grafiti ya maktaba, matokeo ambayo yanapinga haipothesia ya pili. Zaidi ya haya, turnegundua kuwa mitindo ya mazungumzo, ukiushi na matumizi ya tamathali za lugha ndiyo imetumika sana, kumaanisha kuwa haipothesia ya tatu ni ya ukweli.

Abstract:

It has become increasingly obvious that university libraries need audiovisual materials to support research and teaching. Chapters one and two provide an insight into the problem and setting of the study. The U.K experience has been analysed in the third and fourth chapters covering organizational options and problems; evaluation, promotional activities and resource implicactions such as manpower and finance. The study has also attempted in the fifth chapter to determine what librarians in the university and polytechnic libraries visited believe about the place of audiovisual materials in the spectrum of library resources. In the sixth chapter, through juxtaposition, it has been attempted to find out whether the same rationale for their development in the U.K. libraries would be applicable to university libraries in developing countries with special reference to those in Kenya. The impact which an audiovisual service would have upon the University of Nairobi library services has been examined. A description of some of the problems which would have to be resolved in planning to embark on establishing such collections has been outlined.The implementation of audiovisual services requires that needs be assessed and the users to which they are aimed at, problems identified and corrections taken to correct them. Developing countries must not only create indigenous audiovisual materials, but they must also consider seriously methods of effectively evaluating and promoting them. The last chapter draws together some of the possible lines for the future action which have been suggested. Major re-thinking on the part of the existing librarians and universities in order to prevent failure is emphasised. It is tentatively concluded that there is no widespread agreement as to how these materials should be organized or managed. The process is arbitrary provided that the set objectives are efficiently and effectively achieved through a planned, well thought development.
