The University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM) is undergoing mega-infrastructural transformations that include construction of state-of-the-art modern library to accommodate over 800,000 books to be more globally competitive.
Doubling as a public library and resource centre, the library will have the capacity to host 6,000 people, a conference room and Confucius Centre that can accommodate 2,100 and 500 people respectively. The project is financed by China at a grant of 40 million US dollars (about 90bn/-).
Speaking at the ground breaking ceremony also attended by the University Chancellor, former President Jakaya Kikwete, President John Magufuli said UDSM, which has a global history, aims at remaining the leading higher learning institution.
