The University of Lagos Library came into existence soon after the University of Lagos Act was enacted in April, 1962. This library which opened to readers in 1965 has built over the years, a fine and comprehensive collection of research and teaching materials in all the major fields of knowledge in support of the three cardinal foci of the University of Lagos, viz: Teaching/Learning, Research and Community Services.i This role has enabled it to occupy its rightful place as an academic library. Its importance as the nerve centre of academic activities has continually made it one of the targets of meaningful development in the University.
