The Central Library started growing since February 2008 in a rented premises having floor area of about 1000 sq. ft. Presently, it occupies more than 9000 sq. ft. capable of accommodating about 70, 000/ books. University right from its inception has a priority to build up a good university library. University library is considered as the heart as well as index of all academic activities of the institution. The mandate to strengthen the collection and improve the services is one of the important agendas of the university. Though, being a newly established library of only about 8 years old, housed in a rented building, functioning with minimum staff strength of 14 persons is comparable to any other old university library of the country so far as modernization and infrastructure facilities are concerned. The concept of modern library implies the adoption of new technologies to multiply and simplify the services to the utmost satisfaction of the users which the Library has successfully achieved.
