The study investigated the influence of organizational justice on turnover intentions of librarians in universities in South-West, Nigeria. The study adopted the survey research design. Four hundred and twelve librarians from fifty-three (53) universities in South-West, Nigeria made up the study's population. Multistage stratified random sampling technique was employed in selecting a sample size of two hundred and three (203). Data was collected through the distribution of validated questionnaires, with a 98.5% response rate. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Findings from this study revealed that organizational justice (F (2, 196) =178.318, Adj.R2 =.503 P ≤.05) significantly and positively influence librarians' turnover intentions in South-West, Nigeria, accounting for up to 50.3% (R2 =.503) variance in influence on librarians' turnover intentions. However, despite the high degree of organizational justice across university libraries in South-West Nigeria, there exists a high level of turnover intentions (x̅= 3.43, SD= 1.10) on a 5-point scale. It is therefore expedient for university management and library administrators to maintain and improve all dimensions of organizational justice while further study is suggested to find out other determinants of the high turnover intentions among librarians in South-West, Nigeria.
