The study focused on assessing the management of ICT wastes in three federal university libraries in Southwest, Nigeria, namely Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta; Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife; and Federal University Oye-Ekiti. The study adopted survey research design. The population of the study consisted of all library personnel in the three libraries. Using purposive sampling technique, a questionnaire was administered on eight library personnel from each of the three libraries. The study discovered that the libraries generate high-to-moderate levels of ICT waste, and several methods were available for managing such waste. It was also revealed that they experience several challenges relating to ICT waste management in the libraries. The study recommends the need to provide documented policy, infrastructure, and funding for ICT waste management. The study is original in the sense that empirical data generated by this study may assist policy makers in drafting ICT waste management policy, specifically targeting university libraries.
