The University Library, Mountain Top University (MTU) is one of the four principal departments of the Institution. The Library was established alongside the parent Institution. The University Librarian as the Administrative and Professional head, has full responsibility for the day to day administration and development of the department, and also reports to the Vice-Chancellor on matters affecting the Library. Other professional Librarians coordinate and supervise activities in various sections within the library system and report to the University Librarian.
The primary objective of Mountain Top University Library is to provide services that would support and facilitate materials for research and teachings in all faculties of the Institution. To achieve this objective, the Library acquires, organizes and disseminates informational materials in print and non-print resources relevant to meeting the needs of students, faculty staff, researchers and other bonafide members of the academic community.
Readers’ Services’ Section
This section consists of the Circulation Unit and Reserved Unit. The section is in charge of circulation of Library materials. It is the image maker of the Library. It oversees the general reading area as well as the Open Access Collection. This Unit deals directly with the Library patrons. Registration of Users, charging and discharging of books and other materials are carried out at this Unit. The Readers’ Services’ Librarian, Library Officers and Library Assistants at this Unit are always around to assist with the various activities in this section.
Reserved Book Unit
This is a Unit under the Readers’ Services section of the Library. Books placed in this Unit are not in multiple copies but are always requested for by many Library users. Most of the books placed here are at the discretion of lecturers referring their students to the books from time to time. Books placed in this Unit are therefore consulted on hourly basis in order to go round all the Users. Reserved books cannot be borrowed.
