The population consists of 105 respondents from the Department of Library and Information Science from 2007/08 to 2010/2011sessions.  Questionnaire was the instrument used for data collection. Data collected was analyzed using simple percentages. The result of the study revealed that a good number of the respondents chose library and information science as their course of study due to their inability to secure admission into preferred courses like law and medicine. The result also showed that majority of the respondents was not aware of library and information science as a course in their primary and secondary schools. Hence, the researchers recommended among others, that there is need for constant creation of awareness about Library and Information Science as a career right from the primary and secondary school levels.
