The study examines the information resources and infrastructure facilities in Nigeria's Agriculture University Libraries. Academic staffs from Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Obafemi Awolowo University and University of Ibadan are the respondents. The main objective of the study is to determine the usage of the information resources and facilities at Agriculture University Libraries in Nigeria in order to analyze the types of available information resources, and facilities, the level of usage, user. The researcher took 4.4 % of the entire respondent population= 1755= 78. so seventy eight(78) copies of the questionnaires were given to the respondents. Sixty one (61) copies of the various Agriculture University Libraries sampled were retrieved and analyzed, representing 78.21 %.. Key findings show that in the Agriculture University Libraries in Nigeria, the existing agricultural information tools and facilities available, accessible and used are inadequate. There was no access to adequate information resources for users because of the insufficient number of library employees. These findings suggest the need to formalize and improve relations between users and library staff in order to increase access to agricultural information and to formulate policies and regulatory structures for gender response. It is important to have policies that encourage inter-library loans, collaboration and knowledge sharing between Agriculture University Libraries and libraries of research institutes
