THE University Zambia (UNZA) Vice Chancellor Professor Stephen Simukanga says students will start the term-system with no arrears. Responding to a question from a third year student in the School of Education, Mizinga Belden, who wondered how management would deal with students who had arrears in the previous semester, Prof. Simukanga said students who had arrears last semester and those yet to fail in the forthcoming examinations would be given a compensatory grade so as to start the term system on a new note.
The purpose of university libraries is to support teaching, learning, and research in ways consistent with, and supportive of, the institution's mission and goals. In addition, library resources and services should be sufficient in quality, depth, diversity, and currency to support the institution's curriculum. To say the least university libraries are considered as the most important resource centre of an academic institution. They are perceived as a good measure of an institution's excellence and quality.
