Wase, according to a statement signed by the council’s Deputy Director of Public Relations, Mrs. Ngozi Oboh, noted that the pilot accreditation exercise took place at the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua University, Katsina and the University of Nigeria Nsukka.

“The accreditation exercise is for quality assurance purposes and to ensure that libraries adopt standards set by the council for academic libraries in terms of content, facilities and staffing, as well as assessing their use of the curriculum and benchmarks set for different categories of libraries,” he said.

Wase added that the council planned to accredit two more tertiary institutions by July.
