The results of the research indicate that, although majority of respondents (87 %) explained that they had ever used library before they are accepted as the new students of USU, however their library skills are still not satisfied. Apparently even in the small percentage (13 %), there are new students of USU, which never used library, when they were still senior high school students. Basic information retrieval skills of new students of USU are still limited in seeking books in the library by title and author, while the ability in seeking books by subject, keyword and call number are possessed by minimum numbers of respondents only.
