The main objective of the study was to determine possible ways or solutions to the management of security problems in academic libraries in Edo State. Survey research design was adopted for the study. The study population comprises of professionals and paraprofessional librarians from Ambrose Alli University, University of Benin, Auchi Polytechnic and College of Education libraries. The sample size drawn from the population was 92 staff. A purposive sampling technique was adopted for the study. Data collection instrument was the questionnaire and data were analyzed using simple percentages and frequency tables. The main findings from this study includes the problem of theft, mutilation, defacement and faking of date due slip. The effects of security problems are loss of expensive resources which are irreplaceable and the extra cost of acquiring security gadgets such as CCTV. The researcher, from these findings, recommends that competent staff and security personnel should be made available in libraries, tough punishment should be given to perpetrators who violate library rules and regulation and provision of multiple copies of library materials to reduce vulnerability and pressure on few copies of information resources that are available. For future reference, the work will give an insight into how libraries can manage and make use of the recommendations to help reduce security challenges.
