The study focused on the effective of library education as a correlate to the use of library resources in a Nigerian university. The hallmark of education is the ability of the recipient of it to put whatever they have learnt into practice. Students in Nigerian tertiary institutions are introduced to the use of library to quicken their efforts in getting and using the library resources at the quickest possible time. The study also attempts to know the extent of the use of library resources and services. The relevance of library use education to the under study population are also investigated. The results of the findings revealed that much has not been achieved on the use of library resources and services and the use of Information Technology (IT) tools in the library. Urgent improvements are necessary in the areas investigated in order that the aim and objective of the library use education could be fully achieved, as suggestions for its improvements are also given.
