Blessing Ahiauzu, Prince Umor C. Agundu


In the past, information communication and knowledge packaging in libraries were defined by quantum of print collections and literary collectibles available to users. Consequently, space and book shelves took pride of place, projecting the library as print material storehouse and preservation centre. In recent times, e-resources and digital service delivery hold sway in most parts of the world, Nigerian higher education institutions (HEIs) are efficiently bracing up in this regard. To this end, this study sought to demonstratively track and mine topical e-resources on finance which are operationally catalytic to reinventing strategic financial management research in the Nigerian university system. Essentially, the inquest results drawdown from ProQuest database are presented using relative statistics, for 60 related perspectives; which comprise 12 delineations of five perspectives each. Precisely, on August 1, 2014, ProQuest database disclosed 1,856,611 journal documents for 20 conceptual perspectives; 2,745,230 for 20 analytical perspectives; 1,312,332 for 10 managerial perspectives; and 1,474,130 for 10 policy perspectives. Tables and graphic highlights are presented herein for better appreciation of the search outcomes. With greater social media innovative instrumentality and the attendant boom in digital capacity, the evident inquest results should spur finance and other research-driven HEI academic disciplines to leverage on the many thriving institutionalized e-access databases to reinvent and promote trans-disciplinary collaborative research courses for greater intellectual and effectual productive synergy.
