The number of books in the library as on 31-03-2010 is 28923 and the number of journals/periodicals made available in the library is 71. All members of the staff and students are entitled to use the library for consultation and for taking books on loan. Hence all those who make use of the facilities in the library are expected to adhere to the following regulations. Library Catalogue is computerized and is available in the library.

Books will not be allowed to be taken home from the Reference section. They will be issued for use in library room during working hours.

A student requiring a library book should fill up the application form and give it to the Librarian. The Librarian will then issue the book and retain the application form until the book is returned.
