The purpose of the study was to examine electronic resource sharing among academic libraries focusing on Ghana Technology University College and Presbyterian University College Libraries. Qualitative research was used for the study. A semi-structured interview was used to collect data based on the objectives identified. Twelve (12) participants were interviewed. The findings showed that the majority of the participants indicated inadequate budgetary allocation, the influx of technology and information overload in sharing e-resources influenced both libraries studied, the majority of the participants mentioned inadequate ICT facilities as a challenge in both libraries. Other challenges were on cost in the subscription and maintenance, repair and training of staff. It is therefore recommended that academic libraries in Ghana Management should ensure the provision of adequate funds to enable librarians to procure the necessary ICT facilities and other resources to facilitate e-resource sharing to promote quality user satisfaction.
