Abstract: the students are moderately successful in locating items. They claimed that the UML’s OPAC have helped in their studies and it is attractive. The most popular OPAC learning methods are through self-study and from the library staff. Most of them did not receive any training on use of OPAC at UML and for those who attended the training programme, the majority of them noted that it was successful. The study found out that the students are not aware of other facilities that are available in OPAC. They often conduct simple searches such as keyword searching and tend to conduct known item searches since they are unaware of other features available.
