It has been observed that some of the main objectives of applying ICT to library services have not being properly disseminated to the library users mostly postgraduate students and also library staff. The main aim of this paper was to investigate the level of ICT library service awareness in our institutions using a private institution as a case study. The study adopted the survey form of research where the use of copies of questionnaire as research tool was adopted. The result showed that there is a need for tertiary institutions to adopt the use of ICT in their library services and also to employ some awareness programs for their PG students at the every point of enrollment. The awareness program will not only be useful to the students but also to the library staff towards effective deployment and use of the technology.
