This is an interdisciplinary survey that married education with librarianship by evaluating the impacts of Gandhi Research and Bibliographic section of the University of Lagos library on its users who are mainly adults. Questionnaire and observation technique were adopted. The data from the questionnaire were analyzed using figures, tables, percentages, and charts. Chi- Square Test was also applied in data interpretation. Results showed that the library has rich and adeci- le collections that are relevant to users' academic pursuit. It furtuer revealed the need for current and up-to-date journals in all areas of academic endeavour. Also, the need to extend days and hours of opening to include Saturdays to allow users who have tight schedules in their places of work access to this library after the official closing hour was reiterated. The study further revealed the need for more staff to ensure all round and adequate services. Newspapers and Magazines should be available to users on daily basis. Recommendations on how to further improve the services were given.
