The objectives of the University Library naturally derive from those of the University it serves. Briefly, the library exists to provide a variety of resources, book and non-book alike and ancillary services that support and extend the University’s programmes of instruction and research. In its attempt to achieve the above goal, the library sets out deliberately to:
1. Ensure a high degree of relevance of its collection to the needs of the University community; 2. Ensure that maximum use is made of the resources and facilities it provides; 3. Give qualitative reference and information service to its clients; 4. Join its staff with their teaching colleagues in making the use of its resources an integral part of the educational process.
