From the earliest days of the foundation of the University College Library at Achimota the importance of collecting. Africana had been clearly recognised, but the material was not arranged as a special collection until 1962. Prior to this time the many valuable gifts of Africana which were received from time to time were broken up and distributed around the library, the subject field taking precedence over the African context in arrangement.
