The NSUK Central Library

Brief History of the University Library

The Nasarawa State University Library came into existence in January 2002 when the Administration of governor Alhaji (Dr.) Abdullahi Adamu (Sarkin Yakin keffi & Area Obateru of the source) wisely decided to establish a University during the 2001/2002 academic year. The premises of the former school of preliminary studies which gave way to the College of Arts, Science and Technology are now accommodating the Nasarawa State University. Up till September 2002, the collection of CAST Library was used by NASU students. But the property of the defunct CAST were inherited by the Nasarawa State Polytechnic . Every thing, including library resources, furniture equipments and some staff were lost as of the date of final handover to the polytechnic in November 2002. This is to say that the library started building its collection from accession number one. The new library opened its doors to the reading public on 3rd April, 2003. Aggressive acquisition was therefore embarked upon to build up the collection and also the space. At maximum capacity, the library could take up to 500 readers at a time and a book stock of 50 000 volumes. The building was restructured and renovated, properly furnished and equipped to serve the academic needs of the institution. It is on record that the library is lucky to have the attention of the authority that established it, in terms of funding. By February/ March 2004 the library extended it services to the Faculties of Law and Administration in Pyanku Campus as well as Faculty of Agriculture in Lafia. All academic activities in any academic institution revolve around its library. With the movement of Faculties from Pyanku to the main campus, the library now has 3 branches, main, Law and Agric libraries. With the efforts of the current Vice Chancellor, Professor Mainoma Akaro for his exemplary administration, which made possible the recent developments in the library.The University Library isOpen to members of the university community, with books covering a wide array of disciplines and up to date journals and serials including sciences, social science, administration, naturaland applied sciences, arts, and law.
