Abstract

A structured questionnaire was administered on the 500Level students, in the various Departments of the two Faculties, namely: Agriculture and Engineering Students at Ikole Campus of the University (FUOYE), to ascertain their perception of their Faculty Libraries. The assumption is that these set of students are already acquainted with the Library as they have being in the University for a minimum of three unbroken sessions. A total of two hundred questionnaires were administered on the two faculties. One hundred copies, for Agriculture and Engineering students respectively. The response rate for Agriculture was 90responses (90%), while that of Engineering was 87responses (87%). The combination of the two faculties was 177responses, representing 88.5%; which was considered adequate and used for the study. The findings, however, revealed a number of challenges, ranging from: unsatisfactory opening hours, inadequate sitting capacity, insufficiency of relevant/current books and journals, non-conduciveness of the reading environment among others. Recommendations were made as appropriate to address the observed challenges.
