College Library

The college library started in 1964 with the inception of the college. Till 1988 it functioned in the second floor of the old block. In the year 1989, the library was shifted to the new block.

Our college follows a centralized library system. The college library building is functional and modular in construction. It has a wide area of 4.500 sq. ft. in three floors – Ground floor, central floor and Upper floor.The Ground floor houses newspaper, periodicals section and general reading area. This floor also has a TV for watching. The circulation section is functioning in the central floor. The librarian’s cabin is situated adjacent to the circulation section in the central floor.The upper floor houses the stack of the library. The reference, journals sections are also functioning on this floor.

The library at present has a collection of 30611 volumes including textbooks and bound periodicals. The library subscribes to 50 periodicals and 95 journals. Books are arranged on the shelves according to Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC), a scientific scheme of classification. This type of arrangement will help to keep the books on the same subject together with those on related subjects coming next to them. Open access facility is provided in the library to help the reader browse the stack and select the books of his/her choice.

The Library automation process is in the final stage. We use standard library software called ‘LIBSOFT’ for the automation purpose. It offers Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) – a computerized catalogue service. Bar-coding process of the entire collections is going on. This helps the circulation counter in issue and return of books. Bar – coded ID cards are issued to the members and books are issued on producing these ID cards.
