The KEMRI Library is advised by a committee of experts in different disciplines. Faculty members of various disciplines form the members of the library committee. The functions of the Committee are to assist and advise the Head of the Library in the formulation of library policies, purchase of library materials, improvement of library and information services, and operational matters.

The Library provides each member of the committee with an orientation to collection development policies and procedures. The advisory committee also reviews and assists in revising the allocation of collection development funds to best meet the needs of all disciplines. The committee meets regularly to advise the Library in a wide range of other collection development issues.

The Library Committee advises the Director General on the following matters:

  1. The provision of an effective library and information services.
  2. Development and review of library policies and procedures including journals subscription.
  3. Development of library infrastructure and facilities including space, furniture, reprographics, and computer facilities.
  4. Advice on budget proposals, in respect of books periodicals, personnel, furniture, and other facilities and resources required for the library from time to time.
  5. Any other matters related to the effective operationalization of the library to meet the needs of users.
