The research was guided by four research objectives. It took a look at theavailable EIRs in the library under study as well as the determinants that enhance utilization of EIRs in the library. It further looked at how these factors enhance utilization of El Rs and the impacts of El Rs in the academic performances of the students. The research design was descriptive survey with a population of 195 which consisted of undergraduate students who visited and used the library within the period of this research. A complete census was used for the study because the population was manageable and as such,there was no need for sampling. Furthermore, an observation checklist and a questionnaire were used as instruments for data collection. Data was analysed using frequency counts, percentages, mean scores and standard deviation. The findings from the study showed that a few EIRs are available in the MOUAU Library. Furthermore, provision of adequate and functional computers and computer accessories and improved and better funding for the library were some of the factors that determine the utilization of EIRs by undergraduate as revealed by tire study.
