Loyd Gitari Mbabu

Librarian for African Studies, Collection Coordinator for International Studies.

About me

I hold a Ph.D. in Cultural Studies in Education (Ohio University, 2007) and a Master of Information Studies (University of Toronto, 2001). I also hold a Master of Science in agricultural engineering (University of Missouri-Columbia, 1996) and a Bachelor of Engineering in civil engineering (University of Portsmouth, 1991).

As the Librarian for African Studies, I provide in-depth research consultation and instruction to students and researchers from campus departments with a focus on Africa. My outreach activities include faculty/library collaborations in a wide range of library programs such as curriculum integration, selection support, Institutional Repository initiatives, and scholarly publishing.

As Collection Coordinator for International Studies, I work with a team of Collection Coordinators and the Electronic Resources Team to harmonize collection activities of the UM Library. In this role, I also participate in formulating the vision and establishing mission goals for the overall collection strategy.

My office phone number is temporarily disconnected while I work remotely due to COVID-19. Please contact me via email.
