Abstract

The researchers investigated the role of the Mzuzu American Corner Information Technology and Communication Centre which is located at Mzuzu University in Malawi. The study determined the level of use of the Centre, identified services offered by the Centre, ascertained the factors for use or non-use of the Centre and established challenges that the Centre faces. By distributing questionnaires to users and staff, analysing documents, conducting follow-up interviews and doing observations, it was found that photocopying, printing and Internet are the most used services. Shortages of staff, slow Internet connectivity and unavailability of some services negatively affect the use of the Centre.
