This is to inform you that the books were finally received at the University on 3 September, 2018 and released to get to the library on 7 September, 2018.
We then held a mini event to officially receive the books on 13 September, 2018. https://www.umu.ac.ug/institute-of-languages-receives-a-donation-of-books/
The books were received in the presence of the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academic Affairs (Assoc. Prof. Michael Mawa), the Head of Department Journalism Communciations Studies (Dr. Sr. Dennis Samanya), and the Librarian Ms. Judith Nannozi.
Dr. Samanya expressed gratitude for the generous donation:
I am extremely excited about the number of books that were parked and sent purposely for journalism and communication studies. A quick look at them indicates tDr. Carolyn Byerly, the communications culture and media studies department chair at Howard U really understands our departmental needs and made the rightful selection of the books.
- Head of Department Rev. Sr. Dr Dennis Samanya
We are grateful to Carolyn Byerly the communications culture and media studies department chair at Howard University, who initiated contact with Dr. Agnes Lucy Lando, African Regional Representative to the Board of International Communication Association (ICA) to discuss possible placement for the books, Dr. Lando for thinking about Uganda Martyrs U (Institute of Languages and Communication Studies) as a potential recipient of the books and making possible the shipping arrangements, and Dr Dominique Harrison, Senior Project Manager, of The Aspen Institute in Washington, DC. for initiating the donation. We are sincerely grateful for the role that you each played to ensure that the books get to Archbishop Kiwanuka Memorial Library.
Not forgetting Ms. Toledo for the good work (big job) of compiling a list of the books and the team that packed the books.
Thank you all very much. Blessings
Uganda Martyrs University
