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.
