English abstract

The study adopted case study research methodology to evaluate ICT policy use in ten academic and research libraries in Oyo and Ogun States. Convenient sampling method was adopted. The finding showed that only six of the ten academic and research libraries have ICT policy, despite the fact that all of them have procured major ICT facilities. The study also revealed that the existing policies are comprehensive and adequate. However, it was also revealed that the libraries still face challenges in major areas like capital sharing, access, security, ethics, staffing, understanding users’ characteristics and need, procedures required for ICT use and benefit maximization.
