SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) as a management strategy is a method of assessing a business, its resources, and its environment. The essence of the SWOT analysis is to discover what you do well; how you could improve; whether you are making the most of the opportunities around you; and whether there are any changes in your market. So this evaluation took this dimension to critically analyze the Alex Ekweme Federal University, Ndufu, Alike, Ikwo, Nigeria Library as to knowing what it does well, its weaknesses and threats, identifying the various opportunities that exist within and outside the university environment and how to improve on her weaknesses and overcome her threats as noticed. The analysis, revolved around the 42 staff members of the Library, the collection as well as the electronic resources and other associated infrastructure.
