WELCOME TO LIRA UNIVERSITY MUSEUM

According to Spectrum of Science, 2013, there were are only an estimated of less than 600 registered Museums in Africa for a population of around 1.3 billion. Lira, in northern Uganda has no Museum of its own, despite the fact, that Lira is the cultural orientation point for around 3 million Langi in the area.

Lira University, with its Department for Health Sciences, founded in 2010, is a young institution, with a focus on applied education and rural health services. The University developed its curricula in community services, with a strong inclusion of indigenous knowledge and local traditions of the Lango culture, which is part of the greater cultural context of “cattle herders”. The rural population in Uganda, which is actually still around 75 percent of the total population, is represented at and around Lira, by the culture of Langi and Karamojong cattle herders.

The collection of daily items of this cattle herder culture is shown, as an exhibition at the Library of the University Campus. The Library is meeting point and culmination point of learning for the students, and is full at any given moment hosting more than 50 students, inclusive of E´ learning.
