Our mission is to provide information services and resources to support the legislators, researchers, students’ informational needs of the Institute community. In doing so, the library strives to maintain information resources on many subject areas: political science, law, economics, public administration, social issues, history and other related areas. The library has four major sections: Technical, Reader Services, ICT and Archives. The archival collections cover the following areas: treatise, legislative council debate, parliamentary debates, constitutional amendments, reports, acts, debates, etc.

We are here to assist you with your research and information needs. You can contact our librarians via phone, email, and/or in person. You can call the reference desk or the circulation desk for assistance or you may fill on our “Ask a Librarian” form to submit your inquiries.

I invite you to explore our OPAC and site at https://elibrary.nils.gov.ng:8080/newgenlibctxt and http://library.nils.gov.ng to familiarize yourselves with the wealth of information resources and services.
