Information literacy skills have become a vital tool needed by students in Nigerian universities for daily learning.its utilization by students will prove very valuable in accessing the needed information in the library.Students are required to be able to access the card catalogue and use it to retrieve the wanted information at all times. In this age of information society, students are expected to know how to use the library and the available tools to retrieve any required information and to be able to carry out research work with minimal assistance. Sadly, though, this has not been the case as many students lack the requisite skills and knowledge to be able to use the library and the available tools to retrieve information, left alone being able to carry out research work. This is because many students especially in Nigeria do not have the information literacy skills needed to perform this exercise. This research intends to examine the information literacy skills and its utilization by students in two Nigerian university libraries. Information literacy knows when and why you need information, where to find it, and how to evaluate, use and communicate it in an ethical manner.
