dc.description.abstractThe dominant explanation from several studies have reported that despite the tools and facilities for information and communication technology being available, students do not fully utilize them, despite the numerous potential provided by the development of ICT, it has been noted that its application in academic libraries appears insufficient. This is likely because of a number of challenges. The postmodern library at Kenyatta University served as the study location. This study's objective was to ascertain the level of awareness and utilization of ICT in Kenyatta university postmodern library. The research design was descriptive and data was collected using questionnaires, observation and interviews. This research is guided by Diffusion of Innovation (DOl) theory, technology acceptance model and the theory of planned behavior. The study established that despite the high level of awareness among student there's only a limited adoption of the systems. Despite the fact that they exists, there are some barriers that may prevent the mentioned library system from being utilized some of this include Insufficient search skills, slow internet connection, some respondents would rather opt for the search engines on their mobile devices rather than walk to the library and utilize the ICT resources others weren't aware of other ICT resources available, a few stated they are aware, have the required knowledge to utilize but have never really felt the need to use them. The study recommended that the promotion of library ICT services and resources needs to be taken seriously. Social media should be used by the library as new methods of information dissemination and the internet speed needs to be improved. The library has measures put up to ensure awareness and use ofICT including appropriate user training programs, only that some of them are unknown by the students .en_US
