 This study examined strategies for enhancing information services delivery using digital library system in federal university libraries in South-east Nigeria. Notwithstanding all the effort being made by different Nigerian university libraries towards the implementation of digital library systems, it appears that very little progress has been made which could be attributed to a number of challenges. These challenges need effective strategies that will curb them so as to enhance information services delivery in libraries. Owing to this, this study aims at identifying strategies for enhancing information services delivery using digital library systems in federal university libraries in South-east Nigeria. The design adopted for this study is a descriptive survey research design. The total population for this study was one hundred and nineteen (119) library staff while respondents used were ninety-eight library staff. The study was guided by five research questions in line with the objectives of the study. Data were collected using questionnaire and observation checklist. A total number of one hundred and nineteen copies of questionnaire were distributed to the respondents who comprised of the library staff (professionals and para-professionals) of the university libraries under study. Ninety-eight copies of the questionnaire were correctly filled and returned and were used for this study. Data collected through questionnaire were analyzed using percentage and mean scores while data collected using observation checklist were analyzed quantitatively. The findings revealed that there are digital facilities available in these libraries such as multimedia/digital projector, printers, internet enabled laptop, computer server, library management software etc. The result shows that the services rendered such as online document delivery, e-mail reference services, online circulation control etc.even with the availability of these facilities are minimal, attributing the problems to erratic power supply, high cost of implementation, poor maintenance and update culture. The study recommended enhancement and upgrading of current technological infrastructure/facilities, consistent power supply, consistent staff training, adequate funding, adequate workstation and provision of strong internet bandwidth, international exchange of library professionals as strategies for effective implementation of digital library systems. The study concluded that digital library systems though may not be a magical tool towards enhancing information services delivery (the attitude of librarians too matter) but university libraries in the South-East Nigeria need to forge ahead with the rapid pace of technological change despite all odds..
