Message from the Principal Librarian

In the “knowledge economy”, the focus is on the data, information and knowledge as the most important organizational resources. Access to EAC information and knowledge through this web portal, as a one stop shop, not only supports the EAC in fulfilling its mandate under article 71(f) of the Treaty for the Establishment of the Community, but also empowers the people of East Africa to closely follow up the progress of the EAC integration agenda.

Through the EAC Information Repository the IRC is preserving the institutional memory and making a contribution to the development of the African local content and the global knowledge.

The work of developing an electronic Information  Resource Centre is a result of team work, by the dedicated staff of the IRC.


The team is fully committed to providing you with an excellent customer service and look forward to your visit, in person and via our web portal. Feel free to contact us through “interact with us option” you can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook.IRC Staff
