Message from the Librarian


Our library is central to learning in the digital age.

Welcome to the University Library. We believe that the Library’s resources and services are central to your success as students, faculty, and staff at Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology, MMUST. The University Library will always strive to be welcoming and safe places for all members of our communities and to provide service and access independent of gender, religion, disability, age, national or ethnic origin, or citizenship status. Our top priority is to support the research, teaching, learning, and engagement missions of the University. We invite you to explore this web site and visit us in person. We believe you will find that working with our faculty and staff and using the information resources we can provide will enrich your research and learning experience.

The Library plays a fundamental role in enhancing the learning experience, providing students with all the materials and services they need to improve their knowledge. 

Currently, our library offers different services aiming to improve the student experience, including a physical space where learners can find various materials such as books, dictionaries and encyclopedias; an area where students can chill-out and relax by reading books; a place where students are able to find international magazines and discover what’s going on worldwide; and independent study areas as well as collaborative learning spaces where students can meet up with other learners to complete group projects.

In addition, we provide students with tutoring support. By being quiet places, the library offers the best areas where students can receive support to solve their questions and problems, enhancing their study experience. Also, we give learners the possibility to use computers and engage with digital resources that cover different subjects. Through the use of computers, students can search their sources quickly, write their assignments and check the plagiarism percentage of their written work.

We also offer off-campus access, distributing learning resources to students who aren’t attending their courses on campus. This way, they have 24/7 access to digital resources, having the possibility to study at their own pace and whenever they want.

Our Library is fundamental  in delivering a unique university experience, offering on-campus and off-campus students all the services they need to enhance their learning process. In addition, we are very helpful to academics in the creation of engaging materials.
