The MUC Library is established

The Mico University College Library was established since the inception of the institution in 1835 and has served as an integral part of the programme to promote the professional and social development of the teachers in training. 

Humble Beginnings
Starting Small

In keeping with the student enrolment in 1896, the library was a small room located on the ground floor of the Buxton Building, in close proximity to the Principal's Office.  

The Library Grows

By the 1960s, with the growing student population the need for additional texts, reading materials and work space became a priority. The library was then moved to the first floor of the Buxton Building (above BG8) where two classrooms were converted for this purpose.

New Location
Additions & Expansion

Plans to establish a Museum/Library were accelerated, and in 1992 this Centre was erected, forming the first floor of a 2-storey building - the ground floor being the INAFCA Museum.  This building was named the Renford Shirley Building after the then principal of the institution.

Mission and Objectives

The mission of The Mico University College Library is to provide access to resource materials in a user-friendly environment in order to support the academic programmes of the institution and to meet the recreational needs of student teachers and faculties.
