Institutional Repository Policy

Machakos University Library has automated its services using KOHA Library Management System. The Library acquires, organizes and makes accessible collections of print and non-print resources in support of the programmes of the University


The application of Information Communication Technology (ICT) by Machakos University Library users has had a great impact in sustainable development of availability, access and use of ICT. This has made it possible for information seekers of the Institution to access huge databases subscribed through Kenya Library and Information Services Consortium (KLISC)

Library Weeding Policy

Library Weeding refers to withdrawal or removal of information resources from a Library collection. It involves continuous review of a Library’s collection and withdrawal of certain obsolete information materials both print and non-print.
