The Central University Library was set up to provide the informational and research needs of the University community. Knowledge is said to connote power, and the mission of a library is to package this knowledge in a way that can be easily accessible to support teaching, research, give information and to entertain. Since the Vision of the University is to train transformational leaders, the Library provides accurate, current, relevant and timely information to empower users. The Library presently has staff strength of 20, made up of 7 professionals, 7 sub professionals and 6 others.
A higher percentage of the Library’s collection is funded from the University’s budget. However, we receive donations from donors’ both in Ghana and abroad. We also have E-Journal services by our membership to the Consortium for Academic and Research Libraries in Ghana (CARLIGH), E-book Service and an Electronic Catalogue both built in-house and powered by the Destiny Library Manager’s Software.
