Authors : A. Olofinsawe Akin and P.O. Ajayi

Abstract: The fact that Academic Libraries are only effective if only we understand all that surround them. That means coming to grips with the purpose of higher education in rhetoric and in fact the structure imposed upon higher education for educational development of any country. Like other earlier findings on Academic Libraries usage in Nigeria, the result of the study shows that majority of the users of the Federal University of Technology, Akure Library were students (undergraduates and postgraduates). Other users whom were very few are lecturers and other information seekers from outside the campus but their statistics were not kept by the porters. Result of the study shows that students patronized the library services heavily during their exams period or occasionally when they are given assignment. Also, the cumulative attendance of students that registered newly and renew their cards were very low.
