The main objective of any library for adoption of barcode technology is to improve library operations reducing workplace injuries, and improving services for library users. This study therefore examines application of barcode technology in landmark university centre for learning resources, Omu-Aran Experience. The study identified four research objectives. The design used for this study was case study research method. The population for this study comprises of all the library personnel with status ranging from professional to non-professional. The total population of the library staff was twenty (20). The whole 20 staff were used. The questionnaire was tagged "Application and Use of Barcode in Center for Learning Resources,” (AUB-CLR). AUB-CLR was divided into five section.The data collected through AUB-CLR Questionnaire was analyzed using IBM-SPSS version 20.0. Descriptive statistics was used to present the data for better clarification and detailed descriptions were given where necessary. The finding of the study reveals that one of the factor affecting the use of barcode technology in Center for Learning Resources are constant lookup of database which is always necessary due to the fact that barcode doesn’t save data of the book nor the system status; the finding of the study also reveals that 100% of the respondents believe that they are using barcode technology in their library due to its accuracy, speed, efficiency, time saving, and quality of library service. The paper concludes with few recommendations that include the use of Smart Barcode labels with both accession and call numbers in Landmark University Center for Learning Resources. It also recommended that institution logo should be printed on it. The library can indicate ownership and possession of material that can help security officials identify material borrowed from the library and help them prevent loss especially when material is stolen, these labels provide crucial evidence of the Library ownership.
