One of the major requirements in completing a degree in a Higher Education institution is to write a research or thesis based on the specialization of the student’s degree. It is also one of the major roles of libraries to maintain the thesis collection of the institution which the faculty and students’ proof of research can be found. These theses are stored in the library and serve as guide and additional references to the future researchers. The institution's drive towards the continuous growth of its research outputs has led the researchers to develop and implement an in-house library database called as “LCC Thesis Citation System.” It houses all the bibliographic records of both students and faculty research collection being house at the Learning Resource Center. This study helped assessed the quality of studies made by the faculty and the students. It helps the academic department to produce more quality researches, fe asible research topics and easy bibliographic access. The study showed the most and least cited thesis which will help the academic departments to decide what research agenda should be done by the future researchers. Discussions and post-implementation activities include evaluation and recommendations to improve the efficiency of the system by identifying the factors that needs to be added / deleted from the pilot design of the Thesis Citation System.
