|Abstract:||The paper reviewed the role academic libraries play in peace-education and socio-economic growth in Nigeria. The inability to access and use the necessary information resources contained in the academic library often results in conflicts, antagonisms and a lack of peaceful coexistence which have always worked against individual and societal growth. The main aim of establishing an academic library is to provide library services to scholars, researchers, students, parents, academic institutions and the general public. The paper reviewed the academic library as a decisive role which providing access to research-based and filtered information that supports a long or short-term process of reforming societies and harmonizing conflict in the society via peace education initiatives. Through the review of scholarly literature, this paper showed the academic library as a metaphor for information provision that enhances peace-education and socioeconomic growth. It established that the academic libraries gather, store, organize and disseminate relevant, viable and necessary information that promotes and supports peace education and socioeconomic growth. It was recommended among others that the Library management and the government authority should provide adequate funds for the smooth running of libraries as well as change the poor attitude and political willpower toward education and research.|
