Although libraries have a long tradition of resource sharing, in the past the results have not be meaningful as regards to having enough to share with others. The pervasive state of academic libraries generates a syndrome of insufficiency, and will continue for as long as the so-deemed libraries prefer to conveniently ignore resource sharing. The paper addresses problem and importance of resources sharing. Survey method using questionnaire for collection of data from the two selected academic libraries was adopted. Findings revealed that resource sharing is practice at a very low level coupled with failure of the selected libraries to embrace information communication technology.
Keywords: Resources sharing, Academic library, Questionnaire, Data, Information communication technology.
