mofoloMission :     Through personnel committed to professional ethos, the Library and Information Services strive to make accessible to learners, to lecturers, to researchers and the entire learning community, a dynamic information resource in order to give a  practical meaning to the University’s purpose as a repository of knowledge and a centre of excellence. 

Established in 1954 as the nucleus collection of the former PiusXIICollege, the Library moved to the current building that was constructed in 1964.  The Library building was named after Thomas Mofolo when it became NUL Library.  The Library has since evolved into a conglomerate of a conventional library, the archives, documentation unit, a museum section and other services that harmoniously provide information for academic and related purposes.  The service operates from the Roma campus-based Thomas Mofolo Library (TML) building that is the hub and the source of a variety of information resources. Structurally, the Library functions through three Divisions whose scope permeates satellite sites at the Faculty of Law, at ISAS and at IEMS.

 The Library holds about 200,000 volumes of print books on the open shelves and over 189,000 titles of documentation and archival records that are kept on closed access. There are 501 titles of bound and current serial items. Electronic resources range from an increasing number of licensed databases, to several others available through subscription, exchanges and free deposits. The nucleus of the University museum is steadily developing. The entire collection of various conventional and non-conventional information-channeling formats is housed mainly at TML where the Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) describes and locates each of the items listed in the automated system. Although gradually being phased out, a manual catalogue for the semi-catalogued materials exists concurrently with OPAC. Subject areas of all these materials focus on the information needs of clients as they pertain to the academic programmes of NUL. As well, the expressed information needs generally reflect programmes and courses offered at NUL.
