Ngwane Teachers’ college Library is committed to facilitating access to high quality information resources and services through a team of skilled and knowledgeable staff and welcoming physical environments.

We serve as the center of academic information for the  Ngwane Teachers’ College Community. We are a Technology Access Centre  for the University of Eswatini Institute of Distance Education; where UNESWA distance learning students access technology and information closer to their place of employment or residence, providing the highest level of information resources and services in support of teaching and learning.

Our Vision

  • To reflect excellence  by being the first and best choice for our students and visitors in their search for information.

Our Mission

  • To enable access to extensive collections
  • To support users’ needs for research, teaching & learning information resources
  • To support digital and information literacy for lifelong learning
  • To move towards digitization of primary research materials and research outputs of the college

Our Long Term Goals

  1. Enrich the library collection: Print, digital, data, and archival collections of the our library are fundamental building blocks for the College’s teaching, research, and public service. Building and managing collections to provide access to a broad array of scholarly information resources in support of teaching and learning remains one of our  highest priorities. 
  2. Maximise access to information resources:  We are continually working towards adopting new techniques to identify, find, and use information resources. As times and users change, the  library must adjust and  implement  fresh systems to provide better, faster, and broader access and support.
