In this time of economic downturn, libraries of all types need to evaluate their services. Health libraries take a particular change because of the global ""Health for all by the year 2000 and beyond"" demands that the effectiveness of library services to patient care be determined. This survey shows that psychiatrists in Nigerian hospitals need adequate and effective health information for their clinical decision-making. Questionnaires were sent out to hospitals.
