Abstract

This study examined awareness, accessibility and use of library resources by faculty member of Landmark University in Nigeria. It is aimed at finding out the level of awareness, accessibility and use of library resources by faculty members. Stratified sampling technique was used to select faculty members from various units within the university. A structured questionnaire was used to collect data from a sample of 102 academic staff. Frequencies and percentages were used for data analysis. Findings revealed that faculty members of Landmark University were fully aware of the resources the library holds and that the resources were utilized mainly for academic activities. It was also revealed that respondents easily accessed print resources than electronic resources. In addition, resources were underutilized by the faculty members despite their high level of awareness and easy accessibility to the resources available in the library. The study recommended that the library should make its webpage visible as well as carry out user education on a regular basis in order to increase usage of its resources especially the electronic resources. Keywords: awareness, accessibility, use, faculty member, library resources
