It also indicated that the courses that undergraduate students of Adeyemi College of Education are taught Information Literacy Skills are Library Instruction Programme and Use of Computer among others. The findings show that the problems encountered by the undergraduate students of Adeyemi College of Education in the learning of information literacy skills are overcrowded class; inadequate learning equipment and poor/inadequate information literacy evaluation and assessment. It concludes that librarians and teachers in the field should strongly make collaborated effort in teaching information literacy in the college using modern equipment.
