This study looked at the effects of information literacy programmes on the use of academic libraries in Nigeria with a particular reference to Novenna University, Ogume. The study emphasized the importance of information literacy programmes to library users and stresses the need to ensure adequate information literacy programmes to encourage proper utilization of the library. A total of 350 library users were surveyed by a well structured questionnaire. Data obtained were analyzed in tables using the simple percentage and frequency counts. The study revealed poor usage of the library by the library users and calls for more intensive information literacy programmes to ensure and encourage proper usage of the library.
