It identifies with the quality objectives of the university as outlined in university’s quality policy. The library is committed to empower the university to achieve its mission by offering accessible quality training, research and innovation in order to produce leaders in the fields of Agriculture and Plantation Management, Applied Sciences, Business Studies and Finance, Food Technology, Livestock  Fisheries and Nutrition, Medicine  and Technology to suit the needs of a dynamic world by providing speedy and timely access to relevant, current and quality information resources for teaching, learning, research and innovation.

The WULN claims of a print book stock of 70, 000 volumes spread across all faculties of the university whose bibliographic details can be accessed by staff and students in all the faculties via Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC).

The library has access to some electronic journals through the UGC – (CONSAL Consortium of Sri Lankan Academic Libraries) which are available to our users through the internet and are accessible for use at one’s own convenience. To create awareness of the resources available to enable users make full use of them, the library organizes orientation days for any new library user which is usually griped up by conducting continuous user education.
