I appreciate you taking your valuable time to visit the IAA Library’s website. As a core feature of IAA campus for more than 25 years, the many iterations for library services have been part of the campus experience for the thousands of students who have graduated from IAA since its establishment. As you will note, IAA Library is composed of branches, reflecting the campus of the Institute of Accountancy Arusha. The library’s facilities, services and resources are aligned to the Institute strategic direction, and hence are geared towards supporting the academic and research goals of the Institute. This website is our virtual space in the global web of information, but it only represents part of the library services. We offer many of the standard services that one would expect to find in an academic library in the 21st century. Our electronic journal and e-book collections are supplemented by a volume of over 30,000 books, nearly 300 print journal titles and over 1000 archived newspapers back dated since 1992. It therefore gives me great pleasure to invite you to also visit our physical space (library buildings) and discover a wealth of book and print journal collections specifically acquired to support the Institute curriculum.
Although we are committed to helping you to access all your informational needs, we are similarly mindful of the fact that no library in the world can claim to be self-sufficient. In the event that you are unable to find what you are looking for, please do not give up. Consult our librarians who may be able obtain it from other libraries through the Inter-Library Loan service. Our competent librarians are there to provide timely responses to your academic and research information needs. The library’s operating hours goes up to 10:00 PM most of the days during the academic terms. So you have ample time to interact with our librarians as much as possible and also to access our rich collections. You may also bring your laptop in our libraries and enjoy network access to the Internet.
I invite you to explore our website and trust that you will find our resources useful in meeting your academic and research information needs.
I wish you fruitful browsing of our website.
