Library Services are provided to support the college curriculum on the campuses. library loan service, periodicals, on-line journals, magazines, video and audio cassette tapes, books, on-line searching and library orientation tours are all available. An automated circulation system and on-line public access terminals help provide for ease in checking out materials and in searching for needed information. 

A current NAAC Student identification card is used as the library card to check out NAAC library materials. A Student without a current NAAC Student identification card should inform a library Staff member. After verification of Student records, borrowing privileges will be approved.  Continuing Education Students may also request a library card which will be valid for the duration of the program. A tuition receipt is needed to verify registration.  The resources of the NAAC Libraries include over 50,000 books, 100 periodical subscriptions, and 3,000 audio-visual items.

Nubian American Advanced College libraries also subscribe to thousands of e-books and over 70 online databases to provide access to millions of multi-disciplinary and full text publications, peer-reviewed journals, and academic streaming video collections.  A registered Student can log in remotely to our subscription databases seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day through the NAAC Libraries Webpage . 
The libraries provide photocopiers, microfilm reader/printer services, and computer workstations with internet access. The Nubian American Advanced College Open Computer Laboratory is located in the library. The laboratory is equipped with adequate number of computer workstations which are compliant with the Americans and Nigerians with Disabilities Act. One library Staff member is available at the laboratory service desk to assist Students during library hours. 

Library materials may be checked out for 14 days.  Materials may not be held during the intersession between semesters. All materials should be returned to the main circulation desks.  Materials returned after 4:00 p.m. through the outside book drops will be considered as turned in on the following day and fines, if any, will be charged.  

The Library and Learning Resource Center (LLRC) has a one-month loan period for books with the option to renew materials for an additional month. At the end of the loan period, materials that have not been returned or renewed are considered overdue. The LLRC charges 2$ per day for each overdue book. 
When a book is reported lost or long overdue the user is charged for the replacement cost and assessed a $13 processing fee.  Overdue notices are sent through E-mail. A “flag” or hold, is placed on a Student record when fines are owed. Students may not register for classes or receive transcripts until their accounts are settled.  
The physical Library is between the office opening hours and closing hours.
