Welcome Note

Welcome to the Kabarak University Library, a client-focused and a world class learning resource centre.  Our library plays an important role in increasing the accessibility and dissemination of research.

As knowledge and information intermediaries, we endeavor to collect, organize and store relevant information materials both in print and electronic media and disseminate information to students and staff of the University. We also believe in the use of modern information technology to provide timely access to information to all users and satisfy their present and future information needs.

Kabarak University has two Libraries at the Main Campus and Nakuru Town Campus respectively. In the two Libraries we have created the infrastructure to enable us deliver services in the digital library environment to meet the growing expectations of our scholars and researchers.

The Electronic Library gives its users access to academic electronic resources, ranging from Emerald, JSTOR to Wiley Online, eBooks and E-journals.
