History

The stepping stone of the knowledge tower was laid in 1965. The aim of the library focused to act as a support centre in the teaching-learning experience. From referral reading to examination preparations, the library has been supporting the students over the years during the working hours. Introduction of the web sources changed the outlook of the library enabling its users to walk into the network of connectivity for cross sectional studies. The spacious infrastructure can be utilized as a fertile environment to prepare for intellectual ploughing. With the collections of the works of the well-informed authors, the college library encompasses a traditional, quiet and peaceful space to read and study. The e-resources are at hand to the students, researchers and teachers to prepare themselves for classes, seminars, researches and for other outreach programmes.
