Library Book Collection
Mulungushi University Library is committed to supporting excellence in Teaching, Learning and Research, by providing relevant reading material (books and e-resources that support current courses being offered) to its end users. The continuous acquisition of new books has boosted the library collection. The Librarys' book purchase is guided by its Collection Development Policy.
The Friedrich Ebert Memorial Library, at the Great North Road Campus, was designated a United Nations (UN) Repository Library in September 1978 when the Institution was a college. The Library is also a World Bank Repository since February 2007, as well as a Friedrich Ebert Foundation Repository.
Other items in the collection include Newspaper collections of Times of Zambia, Zambia Daily Mail and the Post.
The 2 Libraries are accessible to students and staff of the Institution. External membership is also available on request.
In its quest to provide effective and efficient services to end users, the library is open to suggestions from the University community as well as other stakeholders.
The Library has a number of student computers running on a Local Area Network (LAN) with an Internet connection. Internet facilities are restricted to Mulungushi University Lecturers, Reseachers and registered Students. The Library Open Access Public Catalog (OPAC) is available online through the University website.
The Libraries are headed by a University Librarian.
