Maasai Mara University Library, Like all Academic Libraries of the 21st century, we have hybrid facilities, preserving past knowledge while offering the latest electronic resources, information services and enabling technologies. The library was established in 2007, with a collection of 2,000. This has since grown to almost 30,000 volumes, including about 10,000 in e-journals, as well as e-books.
These extensive collections are readily accessible over the internet and via the Open Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) as well as other resources. The University Library provides a critical portal, where scholarship is discovered and used. This is where collaborative education takes place. The students, faculty and staff find the expert assistance of highly trained librarians. Reliable access to scholarly resources and the provision of timely information services to the students, faculty, and staff remains our primary goal.
