Often, when students comes to use the library, they are left more confused than they came. This is because resources in the library are enormous, therefore, they need to be taught on how to use the library. Library use education are introduced to the first year undergraduates with the aim of assisting them to make the best use of the library resources in order to assist them to realize the objective of teaching, learning and research. If the concept is understood, there will be less dependent on the library personnel for assistance. This book appraises the effect of the contents of the library use instructions on how frequent undergraduates use the library, the way they use the library resources, their ease of locating library resources and the general assessment of the library instruction which is domiciled as "Library 101" The study concluded that much is still needed to be done from the end of the handlers. Few recommendations are given. This book therefore will be of immense benefit to library administrators to improve on their methods of teaching library literacy skills/instruction.
