ABSTRACT

For the purpose of the study, it is assumed that library users exists in the academic libraries studies. These users cause damage to library materials.
The study covers the various means and devices to safeguard library materials from being vandalized by obnoxious and antisocial library users. In order to portray the relevance or importance of the research questions, the researcher made use of questionnaire method, oral interview and observation to get needed information. It was realized that mutilation of books and book theft are the most serious problems in the libraries while physical or personnel security is used in the two libraries rather than electronic security systems because the former is more economical.
The study finds that the two libraries under study have the same vandal problems and use almost the same measure or strategy to combat it but that not withstanding; there are some loopholes in the libraries.
Some suggestions and recommendations are therefore made to improve the security arrangements in these academic libraries.
