Date of this Version



Background: Most libraries are still rendering services without incorporation of ICT facilities.

Aim: This study sought to examine usage of Information Communication Technology in Limpopo public libraries.

Method: The study adopted quantitative research approach, and data was collected through questionnaires comprising of open and closed ended questions.

Results: Majority of public libraries in Limpopo are not ICT equipped, however, those that are ICT equipped do render digitalised service. Challenges found pertaining lack of ICT systems in public libraries were: lack of funds; outdated technology; untrained staff and low staff morale. Libraries should source funds from Department of Sports, Arts and Culture in order to be able to procure ICT systems. This will help in improving the state of Limpopo public libraries.
