This paper examines the process of accreditation exercise in Michael and Cecilia Ibru University stating the relevance of academic library in actualizing the accreditation exercise, in compliance to the National Universities Commission’s definition of accreditation. The focus was on the library holdings, the strength of the library staff. This study seeks to provide an insight into the accreditation exercise at Michael and Cecilia Ibru University, with a view to sharing experiences of the library as the integral part of the institution. The paper thus concluded that if the institution must attain a world class level, there is the need for the library to be equipped continuously with the necessary resources and facilities so as to go beyond the present level. The University accreditation status with the NUC is also an affirmation that the institution is persistently committed to the Commission’s principles and philosophy of accreditation.
