Welcome to MIE Library


The mission of MIE Library is to empower its users (in their) personal, academic, and professional development and to support the teaching, learning and research objectives of the Institute through the provision of inclusive services, technology, collections, and dedicated Library staff.

It offers a great environment for research and learning. The library also provides extensive off-site services, enabling students to access resources remotely when they are not on campus. You can access the library homepage here.
