A word from the University Librarian

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Cavendish University Uganda (CUU) Library page. It has been designed to help you get to know us, the services we offer and information resources available in our library. The library is moving towards the utilization of Information and Communication Technology as a tool in the provision of services and information.

In order to serve a growing student body, CUU Library has increased the number of its branches i.e Kingsgate, SPGS, Law, Public Health and Siyani. They are all interlinked to the Integrated Library Management System (KOHA). These branch libraries have been refurbished with information materials including annual subscription to online resources (E-book Central for Electronic Books and Libhub for Electronic Journals) through the Consortium of Uganda University Libraries (CUUL), to facilitate our clientele's teaching; research and learning needs.

Our Distance Learning students can access library information materials using their patron login credentials. In case of the unavailability of any material, send us an email and the library department will gladly obtain the required article or information through a Document Delivery Service from other universities (inter university service) at no cost.

CUU Library has an Institutional Repository housed in Dspace where all our scholarly student research works are deposited for reference purposes. This is an important aspect of showcasing our intellectual products and encouraging quality works.

Furthermore, CUU has a Journal Management System i.e Cavendish Journal of Social Science and Management (CJSSM) where staff research works are published. The library is a quiet place with few distractions and I welcome you to enjoy it's ambiance.

I look forward to serving and providing you with the best library services.

Akiteng, Alice Okure
