Abstract: The new trend of fee-based services in academic libraries as a result of inadequate central government funding is gradually catching on with Third World University Libraries. The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Library, Kumasi, started to commercialize some of its services since 1989. Some of these services are reprographic, photocopying, e-mailing, CD- ROM and a few others. In 1995, income generated from these activities came to ¢544,240,000.00.It rose to ¢413,612,000.00 in 1996; nose-dived to a low ¢46,421,080.00 in 1997 and climbed up again to ¢419,251,280.00 in 1998. A host of factors contributed to the minimal turnover. These are enumerated and suggestions put across to lift up the performance.
