Nigeria has had private universities only since 1999. This study seeks information on the information needs of faculty in one of those institutions. A questionnaire was used to collect data from 56 randomly-sampled respondents. The findings show that most (53.6%) depend on library books and other publications to support teaching and research. Journals were the most used documentary sources. A lack of current and relevant materials was identified as the primary impediment to information retrieval.
