Salient Themes in African Poetry: A Re-Appraisal of Library and Information Utilization Process for New Media

Christopher Babatunde Ogunyemi, Joseph Adeniyi Kolawole


The paper explores an interdisciplinary approach in the delineation of various voices in African poetry and how these voices were re-appraised by the library in the evalua-tion of its information utilization and the science of information. Themes as echoes were used to salvage various inherences found in the decaying political, economical and social landscape. The paper argues textually the cultural ethos and the contemporary post independence disillusionment on the African psyche as a  result of colonilization. Using the meta-critical approach combined with realism, within sociological approach, the research calls for a concerted effort to stimulate originality and harness the benefits of globalization for the development of humanity in Africa. The onus of the work is predicated on the original research carried out in the library to depict information, utilization and information science.

Keywords: library, literature, poetry, information, utilization process and various voices
