Library Spaces

 

The library space has expanded and it can comfortably accommodate 220 library users at any given time from the previous sixty users. We shall continuously expand the library spaces as the student population grows to ensure that it can accommodate more users given that there are no other libraries such as public or national libraries where students can read from. This makes it prudent for the Library to expand in the near future rather than later.

 

 

 

Information Resources

 

 

 

The Library has a total of approximately 2,000 volumes of which 342 are the recent acquisitions from the University of Nairobi Bookshop in Kisumu. Three hundred and thirty volumes were acquired through donations from Strathmore University and approximately 1670 volumes were acquired through purchase from various book vendors.

 

 

 

Institutional Repository

 

The library is in the process of establishing an Institutional Repository for KAFUCO. Several publications have been availed to the library by the academic staff spearheaded by the Principal, Deputy Principal (A&SA) and Deputy Principal (A F&P).

 

 

 

Computers for the Library

 

The library has requisitioned for 30 pcs of computers to facilitate accessibility of electronic resources as well as prepare for automating the library operations and information services. Harnessing ICTs in library operations and information services will enhance the provision of quality services to KAFUCO library users as well as open accessibility of information resources beyond the four walls of the library.
