University libraries acquire print information resources such as books and journals as well as electronic information resources to support teaching, learning and research and also facilitate knowledge dissemination. This explains why various library services have been developed to promote and facilitate effective use of recorded information in all formats by users. This paper examines the resources available and services offered by the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Library. The methodology used was records on files, interviews and observations. It concludes that in spite of library budget cuts, KNUST Library has made systematic efforts in promoting effective use of its resources by its users. It then makes recommendations to facilitate the more effective and efficient use of KNUST Library resources.
