This study examines the availability and accessibility of Internet facilities in two Nigerian university libraries, the University of Ibadan and the University of Lagos. Three hundred copies of a questionnaire were administered to randomly-selected respondents, of which 280 (93.3%) were returned and found usable. The results showed that there is adequate Internet connectivity in the two libraries. Staff and students access the Internet with ease in their offices, hostels, and faculty libraries, and the two libraries render effective and timely services to users. The study recommends that government and university management should increase funding to universities and their libraries and universities should partner with Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) through Public Private Partnership (PPP) to provide virtual libraries. Universities and their libraries enjoy a constant power supply.
