The study examined issues of backlogs and how Covenant University Library known as Centre for Learning Resources (CLR) responded to the challenge. Relevant literature was perused for causes of backlogs and how other libraries tackled the situation when they were confronted. CLR was quick to address the issue of backlog through the employment of more Librarians; acquisition of web-based Library Management Software; all Librarians were made to be involved in cataloguing with close supervision by the Technical Services Librarian and record of individual’s work generated weekly. Further ways of handling backlogs were also suggested.
