Research on the availability and the use of ICTs was carried out to ascertain the state of ICTs in the two university libraries of Delta State University and the University of Benin. The design of the study was a survey using random sampling technique. The instrument used for the study was a questionnaire. The statistical method of analysis employed was the simple percentage and students’- test. The results revealed that ICTs are available in the two university libraries but the level of availability differed significantly. The results also revealed that ICTs are inadequate and that the availability of ICTs had not influenced the users in university libraries. However, it was gathered from the investigation that ICTs is relevant to library operation.
