The study adopted survey research design method. The population of the study comprised all the librarians in the nine (9) universities libraries in the study area which is made up of 4 Federal Universities and 5 State Universities. The entire population( 145) librarians were used because of their small size. A set of questionnaire (which contained 6 sections) named Information and Communication Technology Training needs of librarians in the universities in south East Zone of Nigeria (ICTTNULQ), was developed. The instrument was validated by the researcher’s supervisor and three experts from the department of Library and Information Science, University of Nigeria, Nsukka.

Only112 out of 145 copies of the questionnaire were returned and analyzed , using frequency distribution table, percentage and means score . The findings of the study revealed that only seven (7) out of eighteen (18) identified ICT facilities such as Computers; Printers; Internet Connection; Laptop; CD- Rom; etc were readily available to the librarians in the universities libraries in south east zone of Nigeria. The librarians possessed less ICT skills such as computer basic, electronic document delivery, networking, file format digitalization, operating system window to use the available ICT facilities. All the librarians required training in all the twenty-eight (28) identified ICT skill areas like Indexing - Servers; Networking;; Computer; etc and nine only (9) out of twelve (12) ICT training programmes were available to the Librarians, such as Formal education, Training at work place., attending conferences,serminar, workshops etc’ On the other hand, eighteen (18) out 0f twenty-one(21) problems were found to be associated with the ICT programmes available to the librarians.
