This article is based on a study which investigated the ability of law students to search the electronic databases of the University of Botswana (UB) Library and their perceptions of the Information Literacy course offered by the Library. The study population consisted of 362 undergraduate law students. Data was collected by means of a self-administered questionnaire. The results showed that although some of the undergraduate law students did use the Library's electronic databases and benefited from the Information Literacy course offered by the Library, many of the students lacked the necessary legal research skills as regards use of electronic resources.
