A welcome message from the University Librarian

Welcome to the University of Rwanda Library services, URLS. As the Largest Academic Library in Rwanda, we are a key partner in teaching, learning, research and innovation. We provide diverse and user-focused services and collections in an inviting, collaborative, and innovative learning environment across 9 UR Campuses.

By combining the latest information technology, the staff builds and maintains a rich information environment, facilitates access to it, and creates a place that functions as a hub of UR scholarly activity where students, academic staff and researchers meet to interact with librarians and expert staff, use collections and collaborate.

Whether you are a new student writing your first coursework, an academic staff  or a graduate student exploring open access scholarly publishing options, or a visiting scholar,  the  librarians are ready to connect you with the materials you need and lend their expertise to help you leverage new technologies to their full advantage.

I hope the Libraries’ rich collections, inspiring spaces and innovative services will help you achieve your academic goals and enrich your experience at UR.

 I invite you to explore this site and visit our libraries.
