The Berea Technical College library is a key resource for students and plays an important role in the social and academic role of the College. We recognise the value of the library to equip students with the necessary resource, skills and information to ensure that they function optimally in order to achieve success in their studies.
The academic library plays a major role in any higher education institution as a provider of information required for teaching, learning and research.
Librarika is a SaaS (software as a service) integrated library system that is deployed on Cloud. Online Public Access Catalogue is built on each Librarika libraries with easy to manage functions. The Berea Technical College library uses this system to manage and control all the library materials and patrons on a daily basis.
The librarians and staff strive to assist all those seeking information with the use of the library printed and electronic materials through the use of in-person reference assistance, printed and electronic research guides and pathfinders.
The library exists primarily to serve the needs of students, faculty and staff of the College. Library resources, such as the computer lab, digital materials, audio/visual materials and study rooms are available to all current students. Students are encouraged to make use of the library books, journals and online resources for assignments, preparing of tests, exams or to increase their general-knowledge.
