The emergence of information technology has brought a drastic change in the role of university libraries. University Libraries play key role in supporting e-learning implying that Library and information science personnel can significantly assist in the integration of information resources in the process of electronic learning. Thus, this study investigated lecturers’ level of awareness of e-learning classroom strategies. Descriptive survey design was adopted for the study. The sample comprised 149 lecturers teaching integrated science courses. Instrument used for data collection was a questionnaire titled Lecturers’ Awareness Level of E-learning Strategies (LALES). LALES was validated and the reliability index of the items was estimated at 0.897 using Cronbach’s Alpha method. The data collected were analyzed using mean and standard deviation to answer the research questions while the hypotheses were tested using t-test. Findings revealed among others, that the lecturers were partially aware of strategies to facilitate e-learning. Based on the findings, it was recommended among others that the Nigerian government should provide e-learning facilities through proper evaluation of Library and information science resources.
