The University also collects and subscribes to, electronic resources to access full-text journals, company information, e-books, reference books, economic data, digital images, industry profiles, market research and career information in electronic form. The on-shelf hard copies and e-resources cover a range of disciplines including basic sciences, health sciences, applied sciences, education, arts and humanities, and social sciences. These resources can be accessed and utilised either within or outside the library.

Duties & Responsibilities

The Library fulfills its mandate through continuous:

  • Acquisition of information source materials through purchase and receiving donations
  • Processing of newly received materials by recording, cataloging and classification
  • Organizing library collections by arranging them in an order that facilitates location, access and retrieval.
  • Stock-taking, which is normally done to have a record of library stock so as to have information on lost stock, obsolete stock, up-to-date stock and discipline strengths.

The library has continued to expand both physically and electronically. It is now in the initial stages of extending library services to Nyabikoni campus and School of Medicine. In the foreseeable future, book banks or resource centers or branch libraries shall be established in faculties, schools, and institutes.

As part of the furtherance of easy access to e-resources and physical material information resources, the University Library service fully embraces ICT in all its operations and service delivery. The target is a full-fledged digital library where the physical library acts as a strong backup.
