Who We Are
About the Library
I welcome you to the robust resources of the Delta State University Library, Abraka and to the Learning Resource Centre of the great Citadel of Learning. In order to fit into the cherished high standard of the Delta State University Library, all students, Faculty members and researchers at large are encouraged to take advantage of the enormous resources, products and services which are systematically organised to facilitate teaching, learning and research activities of the Delta State University, Abraka.
The origin, growth and development of the Delta State University Library is from the defunct College of Education, Abraka, Delta State. The College, established in February 1969, metamorphosed into the Abraka Campus of the defunct Bendel State University, in 1985. The defunct Bendel State was split into Edo and Delta States on the 29th of August, 1991. On the 30th of April, 1992, the Abraka Campus of the defunct Bendel State University became the Delta State University, Abraka. The Library, being an integral part of the University, has been growing along with it. In fact, it has grown and developed to become what it is today, serving 12 Faculties. Under the leadership of Prof. Stephen O. Uwaifo, the Delta State University Library, which was domiciled in Site 2 of the University, relocated to the Ultra-Modern Mega Library building which is its permanent location in Site 3 in March, 2022. The Library has several branch libraries all working in tandem to provide unrestricted access to information resources and services in Oleh, Warri and Oghara
In pursuit of our mission, it is the duty of the Library to provide information resources and services to take care of the academic needs of the University community through making information seeking efforts rewarding and pleasurable for a range of clientele.
The Delta State University Library’s vision is primarily to be the front-end vessel to depend upon for access to information by members of the University Community and others as it relates to research, teaching and community services.
