 INTRODUCTION 

Background of the Study 

The University library is an integral part of a university, which exists to meet the information needs of students, staff, researchers and other users in the community. Edom (2013) defined university library as a repository of wisdom of great thinkers of the past and the present. Its collections and services are designed to meet the instructional programme of the institution involved. The concept of the library as the soul of the university, the pivot around which all teaching evolves is widely acknowledged. No university can exist without a library since university is meant to teach and carry out research. Every university library is established to meet some set objectives. The library is indeed the life wire of a university system for it performs myriads of functions in assisting the university to achieve the various goals set out in her mission and vision statements and this is the main objective of the university library. The vision, mission and strategies which are selected by universities as a guide for meeting the core function of teaching, learning, research and providing information form the foundation on which the role of the university library is established, Okafor (2011) and Rejendran (2005) averred that the main function of a University library is to serve as an auxiliary to a parent institution in carrying out its objectives. He also noted that the library is an important intellectual resource of an academic community, and helps the university to fulfill the curriculum requirements and promote studies and research through their services.

This is done especially through the provision of relevant and current information resources in both print and electronic formats and information services that are easily accessed and utilized by users to meet their diverse information needs and expectation. The services of the university library include indexing and abstracting services, cataloguing services, bibliographical services, reference services, inter library loan services, user education services, information services and circulation services. It is therefore imperative that the university librarians function effectively in their services to meet the user’s needs. However, rapid advances in information processing, storage and communication technology have revolutionized the roles of the university libraries worldwide in disseminating information service to their users as a result, university libraries are facing new challenge, new expectations, and variety of information services from users tailored to their wants and needs. It is safe to say that much of the success of the university in achieving the set objectives depend largely on the quality of services render by the library. The quality of services offered by the librarians to the users in turn depends on technological skills possessed by
