We provides physical or digital access to material, and may be a physical building or room, or a virtual space, or both.Our library’s collection can include books, periodicals, newspapers, manuscripts, films, maps, prints, documents, microform, CDs, cassettes, videotapes, DVDs, Blu-ray Discs, e-books, audiobooks, databases, and other formats.

Machakos University Librarians are always helpful and knowledgeable and they will assist you if you have any query. Everything you need for better future and success has already been written. All you have to do is go to the library.

In addition to providing materials, our library also provide the services of Librarians who are experts at finding and organizing information and at interpreting information needs. We provide quiet areas for studying, and also offer common areas to facilitate group study and collaboration. Our library often provides public facilities for access to electronic resources and the Internet. Being a Modern Library, we are increasingly being redefined as a place to get unrestricted access to information in many formats and from many sources. We are extending services beyond the physical walls of a building, by providing material accessible by electronic means, and by providing the assistance of librarians in navigating and analyzing very large amounts of information with a variety of digital tools.
