Harry C. Moore Library Guide: About Us

Introduction to Library

Central to the University of The Bahamas’ planned evolution to a university, the Harry C. Moore Library & Information Centre is a key facilitator of the institution’s focus on research and innovation. The $28 million library, at the southwest quadrant of The University's Oakes Field campus, was constructed to meet the needs of a growing student population, expanding baccalaureate and master degree programmes and the increased demand for library services and holdings by the University community and the public. The library memorializes the late Harry C. Moore, former Chairman of the Lyford Cay Foundation, and a former member of the University Council (1996 - 2001), by bearing his name. Mr. Moore was an outstanding friend of The University and advocate of the library project. With a holdings capacity for 150,000 volumes, institutional archives and special collections, the library’s phenomenal digital capacity facilitates an electronic catalogue, full-text periodical databases and multi-database searching for full information discovery. A circular design that lends to vistas of The University's Oakes Field campus, the 60,000 square foot library can accommodate approximately 650 library users and has group and study spaces, a 75-seat auditorium and is handicap accessible. It also features a 24-hour Internet café and has wireless access throughout the property.

University of The Bahamas Libraries is a system of three library branches: Harry C. Moore Library and Information Centre (HCML), Hilda Bowen Library (HBL) and the UB-North Library. In addition to general collections, the HCML provides specialized Bahamian, Caribbean and Law collections.  LIMS caters to the research and information needs of the entire University community with an instructional media services department that provides technical support for students and their professors in the classroom.
