The purpose of the study are to determine the extent of the use of library and also to identify challenges encountered in the use of library catalogue, the survey research design was adopted for the study. The population consists of 484 registered HND users from which 50% or 242 were sampled based on their availability in the library. The questionnaire was used to collect data which were analyzed using simple descriptive statistics. Findings revealed that majority (49%) of HND students never used the catalogue at all, while 30% use catalogue occasionally. The students lack searching skill and are unfamiliar with the catalogue.
