KIU, Main Campus - Jackline Mayinje, the Deputy Chief Librarian of KIU Main campus has urged students to embrace the library to better their academic excellence at KIU.
Speaking during the library orientation of new students for January 2021 held in the library today morning, she said the Iddi Basajjabalaba Memorial Library has all it takes to make one excel both academically and intellectually.
Mayinje called upon students to use the library to interact with the world-class learning materials in order to master the art of academic excellence. She stressed that having a fully stocked high standard library like the Iddi Basajjabala Memorial Library (IBML) is a rare opportunity.
“A library is a very important institution in KIU. You learners have to interact with our high-class learning materials in order to excel. Remember it is a rare opportunity to have a library like ours just like it is to be at KIU. So, please use it to excel academically,” Mayinje said.
She also urged students to reconsider the struggles their parents have gone through to send them to university instead of getting lost in the exciting university life.
”Kindly mind about where you are coming from and remember we are in the hardest situations of life due to COVID19. Your parents have really struggled to send you here. You must not disappoint them. Use the available materials effectively so that you can make them proud,” advised Mayinje.
The library orientation that began at 9am marks the second and last day of Orientation of January 2021 intake students at KIU. Students have been introduced to the rules and regulations of the library as well as the different departments therein.
