Library

The College Library was set up in the year 1998. The Library had an initial collection of 400 books and they catered to the B.com Course. As the number of courses grew the library collection too has kept pace. The library caters to all the undergraduate & post graduate courses conducted by the college. The College Library has correspondingly tried to build up a collection suited to each of these courses. Over the years, it has emerged as the sole repository of the syllabus books. T he collection includes reference books and the mandatory text books. It also includes books & even encyclopedias on environment, management, television, journalism, video production, politics & history. An eclectic collection of fiction, non-fiction books has also been built up.

The library currently has a total of over 35000 books and 51 journals / periodicals published at state and national levels that encourages both regular learning and research activities in the college campus. The collection is increased every academic year to keep pace with growing user needs. It is also kept up-to-date and incorporates changing technologies. The library is spread over the area of approximately 2624 sq. feet with the seating capacity of approximately 150 students. The library also has special seating arrangements for physically challenged learners and staff in the faculty area. It also has a research centre with 8 computers for staff and students. The library is further equipped with desktop computers, Kindle E -readers and internet connectivity. There is also space for reprographic facility.The institution is continuously updating the collection of books, research journals and periodicals for the benefit of the staff and students. OPAC facility is also available on the computers allotted for staff and students. Users may browse through the collection via an open access system. There is also a very good collection of over 2000 reference books which is maintained separately. Soft copies of the latest question papers are also made available to users.
