  • A word from the librarian

Welcome to Judith Thomas Library portal. The library is Ultra-Modern with a welcoming environment for students, faculty and staff. The library has adequate space with attractive furnishing. The ever-green and health plants placed strategically in the library makes it beautifully inviting to the users as they interact with knowledge. The library is ICT-compliant because information resources are managed by an integrated library management system. The library’s portal is a gateway to our resources and services and I encourage you to visit and explore it more often and make optimal use of it. I wish you success and God’s blessings in your search for knowledge.
