The Library’s vision is to become an excellent centre for academic and research activities of the Egerton University Community, by providing a conducive environment for reading and learning.


Its mission is to support the teaching, learning and research needs of the University community by providing access to relevant information resources, disseminating research information and giving user-centred services


The Library supports the University’s mandate to foster innovative research and teaching by selecting, organizing, disseminating, providing user education and preserving information resources in both print and electronic formats. The Library develops and maintains quality information services by seeking feedback from the users.


Information resources are processed and organized using internationally accepted standards like the Library of Congress Classification Scheme and the Anglo American Cataloguing Rules which enhances easy access to the materials as well as resource sharing with other libraries. Through collaborations with other University Libraries and Library & Information Consortium, the library is able to share resources and subscribe to information resources at subsidized rates. The library has a rich collection of thousands of volumes of the latest editions in various disciplines. It has 24 hours Internet connectivity through which electronic resources are accessed through the IP address for those within Campus and passwords for remotely located users. Using the AMLIB Library Management System, the Library has automated all its operations making information service more effective and efficient.  Using a 3M electronic Library Security System the library is able to safeguard against theft of library materials.
