Central Library

“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”— Marcus Tullius Cicero.

A library is a house of aspiration; it is a place where we all, whatever our situation is, can feed our ideas to ultimately lead ourselves to the achievement. As a matter of fact, every student’s alma matter is books, a library where s/he can spend the rest of his/her life reading, simply satisfying his/her curiosity. It is a kind of paradise to the students because reading can take them to places they have never been before. 

Activities:

                   The modus operandi  is regularly monitored by the Advisory Committee of the Central Libvrary of the college, which comprises of the Principal as the Chairperson, the Librarian as the Convener, Secretary of the Teachers’ Council and some other teachers. The Committee also includes the representatives of those departments having departmental libraries. The Committee recommends books, which are needed by the students and also suggested by the teachers considering the up-to-date development of the subject concerned. It also monitors the purchase of latest edition of books, distribution of funds, selection of journals; maintenance of old books and journals etc. The Librarian takes care of the preservation and accession of books.

Once Albert Einstein opined: “The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library”. Indeed, the Central Library of the college is separately built with a spacious  reading room and a circulation section that remain open on all working days from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm (only up to 3.00 pm on Saturday) except on Sunday and other scheduled national and Gazetted holidays of the College. It is said that bad libraries have collections but good libraries build services. Ours is the second kind and we have been offering the following services to augment the knowledge of our students:

  • Digitized catalogue
