Central Library

The Central Library functions as the primary information resource centre, and repository of all printed and e-resources for teaching and research activities at the institute. Apart from textbooks and recommended reading material prescribed for each course offered at the institute, the library houses a growing collection of research monographs, reports, multi-volume reference works, dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks, and so on. In addition, the library also facilitates access to a number of journals through its participation in consortia, such as INDEST-AICTE. At present, users can consult more than 7000 books (available on shelves) and thousands of electronic journals.

The library operations are automated using LIBSYS software, and the library personnel are presently working towards setting up a digital library and e-resource centre. These steps will greatly enhance the librarys efficiency in making the resources available to the academic community at large and also enable the institute participate in various inter-library initiatives at national and international levels.


The library is spacious (about 4500 sqft), well lit, and well-ventilated. Its location allows for easy access and offers a seating capacity for 120 users.
