The UoN Bindery Section

Head Binder: Eunice K. Kimengu


Staff | Services | News & Events | Operating Hours | Projects | FAQs

The Library system boasts a modern bindery section which handles all library and University requirements that include binding of academic theses / dissertations and official documents, as well as the restoration of worn out or damaged texts.

This service is not limited to UoN; we also bind documents and academic materials for organizations and external students at affordable prizes.

It is now a policy that pending graduation, all dissertations and theses are bound at the Library bindery before they are submitted to Graduate school. The binding service is therefore available for Ph.D and Masters students. The binding service is also extended to anyone who wants to bind personal or other academic documents. Library users are called upon to take full use of the Library binding services.
