Finding books and other library resources
The following will help you find the right information materials or information in the least
possible time:

Too often students waste precious time wandering aimlessly in search of a source
because they afraid to ask for assistance. Do not hesitate to ask the librarian for
assistance.
ii. The library catalogue
We keep a record of all the books in the library in a database. We have an online public
access catalogue (OPAC), all books acquired are recorded here. Link; library.yci.ac.ug
