About Central Library

This is an academic library. A library is of great significance in the teaching-learning-research activities of the college. A well equipped library serves as an unfailing companion in achieving highest level of intellectual excellence.

Our Central Library is located in the ground floor of the college building. It is well-stocked and provides open access facility, where the readers may browse through the collections themselves. There is a regular annual addition of books to the stock. The library has a well furnished Reading Room with sitting accommodation for 50 members at a time. Ready help and guidance is provided to all members searching for any book or other reference material within the library. The library staff are always available for any assistance required. There are provisions for computers within the reading room to provide free and fast access to internet, which enables the students and staff to enrich and update themselves.

The library is being expanded and upgraded to cope up with the changing demands of the students and staff. Active participation of the students in the organization of the library is commendable. Efforts are currently being made to computerize the library activities and give better service to the students and staff of the college in future. Open Source Library Management Software KOHA (Version 3.16.04) is currently being used. The College has become a member of the NLIST programme so that access to e-resources could be provided to the members of the Central Library.

SEMINAR LIBRARY: In addition to the Central Library, 17 departments offering honours courses have separate Seminar Libraries, for their honours students. It contains specialized books that the students can borrow with the permission from the Head of the Departments. The functioning of the Seminar Library is monitored by the departments concerned.
