This paper describes records management practice for personnel files at Delta State University Library, Abraka, Nigeria. Data were collected through interview and observation. Manual filling systems such as registers are used for staff records, and most files are too voluminous. There is a space constraint due to the lack of a retention and disposal schedule and the lack of a computer system. It is recommended that the staff responsible for the files undergo records management training programmes or that a diploma holder in records management with computer knowledge be employed, and that records should be computerized.
