ABSTRACT

This study investigated the extent of library utilization by students of veterinary medicine in two federal universities in south east geopolitical zone of Nigeria. Five research questions were formulated to guide the study. The population of the study was 1250 undergraduates students of veterinary medicine but 20% of the population participated in the study. The instruments for data collection were questionnaire and observation checklist.  250 copies of the questionnaire were distributed to the students, out of which 246 copies were returned, representing 98.4% of the copies distributed, which is a response rate. To analyze the data, descriptive statistics were employed which includes percentages and mean to answer the research questions. The result obtained from the findings revealed that: Micheal Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike and University of Nigeria, Nsukka has the same information resources as veterinary medicine students. Library services in both institutions under study are inadequate resulting in student’s apathy to the library. The study shows inadequate utilization of library by students of veterinary medicine and some information materials are dated in the library, such that students also find it difficult to know when new materials are acquired in both libraries, possible suggestions on improvement were made: provision of relevant and current information resources. Provision of internet services/facilities is the libraries, Current Awareness Services and employment of more staff to help students locate materials in the library. Conclusion and recommendations were made based on the findings of the study.
