|          THE UNIVERSITY LIBRARY|
The Main Library of the National University of Rwanda is situated on the south of Ruhande Hill. It is surrounded by academic units (the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and the Faculty of Economics, Social sciences and Management; and the Faculty of Science and Technology). It is near the two Vice –Rectors‘ offices, no so far the main hall (grand auditorium) and the electromechanical and civil engineering labs. It is in the same building with the Computing Center.
The Main Library includes three main entities: the Department of Internal Services or Technical Services, the Department of External or Public Services and ICT Department.
It was built in 1964, and extended in 1968. Early in 1978 a new large building, which has about 250 sets, was opened. (But now this one is becoming narrower and narrower and the necessary procedures to obtain a biggest one are in process). Many sub-libraries are now in operation; most of faculties, schools or institutes have their own library.
