The Library & UGC Net Centre of the college has about 22000 titles and a variety of useful and reputed journals and magazines. The college has access to N-List Website – National Library and Information Services Infrastructure of Scholarly Content, an 'E-Library' which enables teachers and students to access thousands of additional publications. Teachers and students have been allotted their own User IDs and Passwords and they have access to more than 97000 e-books and 6000 e-journals for their research. The library is computerized with an 'Online Public Access Catalogue' (OPAC) that enables the student or teacher to check the availability of any book from the terminal provided. Periodical displays of new arrivals are organized by the librarian to facilitate students to familiarize with all books available in the library.
Students can also be members of the Reading Club of the library. The club encourages students to spend more time in the library. The main aim of the club is to cultivate reading habits, to enhance reading skills, understanding ability, analytical & reasoning capabilities and Communicative skills. Frequently, a teacher introduces a new book to a group of students inside the library. The teacher initiates discussions on the books selected and seeks ideas of students about the titles.
The Library has a Book Bank, specially established for poor students with the generous support of the senior teachers of the college and the Alumnus. The books are issued to students who are economically marginalised. They are allowed to keep the books until the examinations are over. Besides, each department has its own ‘Departmental Library’ that helps students to access more number of books other than those issued at the main library. Teachers can also avail books from the Departmental Library.
One of the Best Practices of the Library is the “Book Exhibitions”. Periodically, all newly acquired books of the Library are displayed for the benefit of the users. This allows the students to have hands on information about all books / titles purchased. Another best practice is the “Display of Newspaper Clippings” of important events on the notice board of the library on a daily basis. This is done with a view to enhance reading habits of the students. In addition to the borrowings of books students could browse through Compact Disks of various subjects. Reference services of the library are available to all students and teachers beyond normal working hours of the college and even on holidays. The library’s services are open to Alumni of the college and to the hostel inmates. The students registered at the study center of the KSOU are allowed to use the library facilities. In addition, the UGC Net Centre attached to the Library, allows the visitor to avail internet facilities and further his research habits.
