The study determined the relationship between Information and Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure resources utilization in libraries and post-graduate students' research output in Nigerian federal universities. The study adopted a correlational survey research design in six selected Nigerian federal universities with a population of 40,328 postgraduate students as of the 2018/2019 academic session with a sample size of 2,016 (5%). The questionnaire was the instrument used for data collection through online google forms. Linear regression and process macro analysis were used. The result shows the coefficient of determination (R2) associated with the correlation coefficient of 0.351 was 0.123 for ICT infrastructure resources. The findings of the study show a low level of relationship between ICT infrastructure utilization and post-graduate research output. The study recommended that the universities managements investigated should upgrade their libraries with current and relevant ICT infrastructure resources across the campus by creating a conducive research-enabling environment.
