This research work examined shelving of library materials in college libraries with Imo State Polytechnic, Umuagwo and FECOLART as a comparative study. Data was collected through a combination of questionnaires and documentary sources.

The data obtained were analyzed and results show that shelving of library materials was undertaken by Para-professionals and recommendation was made that shelving of library materials should be done by Para-professional under the strict supervision of professional librarians. In an effort to ensure effective library operations, the following recommendations are made. 1. That libraries should ensure that library materials are shelved by paraprofessionals under the strict supervision of the professionals as this will contribute effective and efficient means of retrieving information bearing materials in the library. 2. Shelving should be done in the morning before readers are allowed into the library. 3.
