Abstract: A Nigerian private university is newly venturing into postgraduate study programs and has an enrolled postgraduate student population of about a hundred. This study evaluates the postgraduate students' use pf library: their information format preference, internet access and electronic resources used in their various research activities. Data collected from 48 postgraduate students using structured questionnaire, and was analyzed using frequency, percentage, bar chart and pie chart. Findings indicate that the study group has regualr access to the internet, and prefered using free online resources from Googlr and Wikipedia to institutionally subscribed academic online resources in databases such as HINARI, EBSCO Host, Questia, JSTOR and High Beam.This shows that technology alone cannot help bring about the required changes in provision of information to users. Users' attitude and practices needs to change while academic library policies need to include users' training on information searching skills and aggressive marketing library resources to users.
