Library Collections at NYU Accra

The NYU Accra Reading room has a unique collection that provides students with information on the cultural, historical, scientific, and anthropological resources of Africa, and more specifically West Africa and Ghana. Required course materials, such as textbooks, make up the bulk of our collection, but we have additional readings to enrich students studies. This collection is designed to compliment those online materials provided by the NYU Libraries in New York.

NYU Accra Reading Room Policies


  • Our books, with the exception of reference books, may be checked out for 2 weeks. 
  • Reference books can be borrowed for a few hours at the discretion of the library staff, and must be returned before the close of the day.
  • Certain required course materials can be loaned for a full semester.  Please contact our staff for more details.
  • Food and drinks are not allowed in the reading room.
  • The reading room is a silent study area.
  • Borrowed books not returned at the end of the semester will be billed for the price of the book to their bursar accounts.
