This paper dealt with information systems which had existed since the beginning of mankind. Information systems tagged as computer based information is employed in educational settings in all countries of the world especially Nigeria as a developing nation. This has changed over the years and has given rise to information technologies and data storage devices for recording information. These are virtually done in any form of energy spanning from manual muscle power in hand writing to acoustic vibrations in phonographic recording. As new information technologies are developed in educational industries, new categories emerge that can be used for information systems. This paper therefore examined information systems in Nigerian education as it affects data storage devices and data bank. This is because the power to process information rapidly makes the data bank a versatile centre for planning and research.


Key words: Information system, data storage, Nigeria education.
