JKUAT Library Service provides access to a wealth of knowledge through the print collections, electronic access and a network of other libraries.
As learning, teaching and research needs continue to evolve and change; so too does the world of information. The library services continue to evolve in order to meet both the university and individual information needs. This evolution takes place in the context of a dynamic scholarly communication environment influenced by new and emerging technologies. University libraries are challenged to respond to changes and opportunities, to capitalise upon them and wherever possible pre-empt and lead them.
Our ultimate goal is to create library services that are convenient and efficient for our students and academic staff; to enhance university teaching and learning programs and to enable research and scholarship in both traditional and electronic formats.
Library staff take pride in the services they provide and in the many initiatives they undertake in partnership with the university staff, students and the broader community.
