Welcome to KCU Library Services
Transforming Lives through Knowledge Sharing
The library was started to meet the teaching, curriculum, educational, and research needs of the King Ceasor University educational community. The library was started in 2011 when the University was opened. Originally it started with few print books but over the years its collection has risen tremendously to include electronic information materials. The library also boasts of automation of most of its activities which is a must for efficiency and effective service delivery in this century.

Open Access Resources
The internet has become a major source for information, and scholars are often looking for ways to get access to more books and other materials. One way to do this is through open library resources. This service allows students to borrow digital copies of books from libraries around the world.
ebooks have become increasingly popular over the last years. This is due to several factors, including the convenience of being able to read a book anywhere you have an internet connection, as well as the lower cost of purchasing an online book compared to a physical book. In addition, many online books offer interactive features that make reading more engaging.
Below is a list of Open Access ebook sites where to access such material.
