LIBRARY OUTREACH AWARENESS AND SENSITIZATION


outreachOn March 31st to Friday 2nd April 2015 the library conducted an outreach program. The program targeting members of the School of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences and School of Pure and Applied Sciences aiming at achieving the following objectives

  1. Promotion of library electronic resources especially the newly added ones including distributing brochures
  2. Conducting user training among members on user access showcasing the different features entailed in the databases
  3. To enhance the registration of members to library systems (databases)

The sessions covered the background information of TEEAL (The Essential Electronic Agricultural Library), installation and hands-on practical activity on access of Teeal database including the new added features. Academic staff were also made aware on new additional electronic resources and services that can be accessed and utilized by users of the library. The one on one sessions enabled the library staff engage the academic staff on their user queries through hands- on sessions, navigating through the resources. The program enabled the library staff reach out to about 30 academic staff led by their Deans from the two schools.

The program officially ended on 2nd April with a vote of thanks from the Acting Vice Chancellor Prof. Mwakio P.Tole in his office as seen on the left together with a section of librarians.
