Inter Library Loan

The Inter library loan is a service to obtain resources from other libraries, when they are not owned by the MIE library. We have at present a working arrangement with the UOM library and the MSIRI library respectively. This interlibrary loan mechanism applies to all full-time Academic staff of the institute and students who undertake the B.Ed courses only.

Catalogues: On-line facility for library users

The On-line Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) is available without restriction in the Lending Section. Only current members of the institute may use the electronic information resources made available via the Library's PC's.
