On Thursday, February 10, 2022, the library department trained RU Dons and postgraduate students to set up and use the library mobile and web application christened as MyLOFT: My Library at my fingertips.

In his opening remarks, the University Librarian, Mr. Joel Nakitare, said that MyLOFT is one of the library’s strategies to reengineer her services as a response to the pandemic. With the restriction of movement and physical meetings, MyLOFT bridges that gap as library users can access the resources at their comfort. MyLOFT App will assist library users, both staff and students, in easily downloading and reading offline e-resources subscribed by the RU library and other digital content.

The participants were taken through the functionalities of MyLOFT as a mobile app and the web version.   The lead trainers were Mr. Silas Too, Purity Kerubo, and Mr. Joel Nakitare. In his parting remarks, Mr. Too pointed out that there are enough built-in user guides for users to refer to and learn at their own pace.

Users can contact or visit the University library for any help or clarifications.
