The IUCG Library is the heart of the university and is therefore very vital to academic works. Since its inception, the library has been acquiring materials that suite the programmes the university offers. The library has four sections namely, the stack, reading hall, the e-library and the office of the librarian.
The IUCG library started acquiring reference materials from the scratch and it now has about 9000 reference materials made up of: Religion and Allied subjects, Business Administration and Allied Sciences, Communication and journalism, Information Technology, Social Sciences, Arabic and English literatures, Western and African Novels, Magazines and Journals, and Dictionaries and encyclopedias. More stocks are being added every now and then.
The library has a spacious and air-conditioned room which serves as the reading hall and is capable of accommodating 200 people at a time. There are future plans to expand the reading hall.
The electronic library was created to augment the print resources. It is housed within the library premises with 10 computers which are hooked to the Internet. The benefits of the e-library include access to free and credible resources from the Internet, access to the institutional repository (IUCG research output) and electronic books on DVDs.
