This study investigated the role of bibliotherapy in value system formation by undergraduates in seven faculties of the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. Out of the 1,372 sampled students, 746 (54.37%) were males and 626 (45.63%) were females. The Chi-square statistical method at the alpha level of 0.05 was used in testing four hypotheses developed for the study. The results were statistically significant. Findings indicate that bibliotherapy exerts determining influence on value system formation by undergraduates with respect to group-, self-, society-, environment- and nation-oriented values. These findings corroborated previous studies by educators, librarians, physicians, nurses, psychologists and occupational therapists or bibliotherapists who are of the consensus that the book exerts influence on the human spirit and impacts heavily on human behavior and formation of value system.
