The College Library and Reading Rooms are one of our most significant assets. The Libraray has an online cataloguing system that provides access to library resources. All our books are coded through dedicated software and are easily accessible through computers in the library and the departments. Free and ready access to the Internet for students and the faculty has made it possible for our college to reach higher and global levels of education and research. The Reading Room has study spaces with a mix of quite individual and group-study areas. The Library provides a book-bank facility too for lending text books to needy & deserving students for a period of one year at a stretch.
Students wishing to borrow books shall apply to the Librarian in the prescribed form. Borrower’s tickets shall be issued by the Librarian to eligible students on application. Such tickets shall remain in force till they are cancelled by the Librarian. They are not transferable.
Students with borrower’s tickets shall be allowed to borrow two books at a time.
Borrowers will be eligible to keep books for two weeks from the date of issue. At the end of the period, the books shall be returned to the Library, but they may be reissued to the same student if they are not required by other students.
Borrowers failing to return the books in time shall pay a penalty of Rs.1.00 per book per day beyond the due date. In the calculation of fine all holidays for the library shall be excluded. Unless the penalty is paid, no book will be issued to the students. In the case of students appearing for examinations, no dues certificate from the Librarian is to be produced.
