Department Of Librarian

Central Library

To ensure active involvement of the students and teachers in enhancing the teaching-learning process we have introduced   LIBRARY INDUCTION CLASSES at the beginning of the session for the first year students, so that they are well aware of the services and new initiatives.

We are no less active in fetching resources from possible sources for enriching our collection, be it on a virtual platform. We are an institutional member of the British Council library. We have access to online resources under NME-ICT, INFLIBNET- NLIST. We have started automation with KOHA. We want to gradually implement the facilities for users with KOHA, which has multiple applications as an interactive platform. We are organizing orientation and motivation programmes to communicate about library services and activities. We adopt extension and outreach activities to involve faculty and students in social sensitization, emotional wellbeing, soft skill enhancement, community involvement and inclusion,cultural exchange and special emphasis on environmental protection and awareness. Different innovative techniques are initiated for maximum involvement of students and boost up interest in learning.

A library holds the key responsibility to cater to the needs of the students. Necessary support in the form of academic requirements such as resources for curricular supplementation. However orientation, motivation, social sensitization of students both from the academic and psycho-social perspectives is another noteworthy support which builds up the student into a self sufficient, confident and socially responsible human being. Being a mentor for developing the soft skills as well as indicating to career and job prospects or assisting  student progression is a vital issue a library can take care of.
