University - The Library
The Main Library
The HKMU Main Library has a large number of textbooks and journals, and maintains a computerized catalogue. Each student must be registered with the library before he/she is allowed to use its facilities. Once a student is registered with the Library, he/she will be issued with a library regulation handbook, which encompasses guidelines for the Library, Book-Bank, and the Computer Laboratory.
This is an allied section for the Main Library, where specific and key textbooks for various courses offered in the University are kept. This unit is one of the landmark establishments of the University’s founder, the late Prof. Hubert C.M. Kairuki, who advocated that a Medical and related Science student at this University, should have at least one textbook for the main courses of study in a semester, so as to improve their mastery and performance in such subjects of study.
A minimal subscription fee is charged from students on an annual basis, to facilitate replenishing of worn-out textbooks. Once students borrow books from the book-bank, they can stay with them for the entire semester, to enable them to understand their course/subject of study easily. At the end of each semester, students are required to return the books to the book bank. Students who fail to return the books are not allowed to register in the following semester.
