The VC said that the university is looking forward to acquiring 10,000 books as the National Universities Commission would check if students and staff of the institution have access to quality instructional materials, especially books in the library.
“We are in the process of acquiring the 10,000 books and we have already received 6,000 of them.
“Part of what the NUC will be looking for during the accreditation is the extent to which our collections will satisfy the requirement for quality, in terms of what we teach.
“NUC will check whether our students and staff have access to quality instructional materials particularly books in the library that will be able to reinforce learning and teaching.
“For this company to have come in the month of our accreditation is something Plateau State University is very happy about,’’
