described how weblog was used to meet the need of users and create
access to medical information sources and resources for easy retrieval
in Afe Babalola University, Ado – Ekiti Medical library. The ubiquitous
Internet continues to increase sources of information to information
seekers in this present age as information are lodged in different web
platforms ranging from digital libraries, databases, repositories, and

in their quest for knowledge are limited to popular search engines such
as Google, inadvertently short-changing themselves of many other sources
that search results may not reveal. Based on this, there was the need to
bring our databases and other useful electronic resources together,
using a Web 2.0 tool, the weblog was deployed so as to better serve our
users and help them gain access to useful information they might have
